Overnight Party of 4
Overnight Party of 4 Dixon Property Mount Carmel Utah
In 1938, Maynard Dixon and his wife, Edith Hamlin, left San Francisco for the Southwest, an area they both loved and had explored many times. In 1939, they built a log home along Utah's Highway 89 in the small Mormon community of Mt. Carmel, near Zion National Park. Attracted by the oasis of cottonwood trees, streams, magnificent vistas, colorful sandstone cliffs, and the area's celebrated cloud formations, they established their summer haven away from the Tucson heat May through October. Inspired by the area's landscape, the Dixons shared their lovely summer retreat with many artists and friends.
