Please Note: The Dixon property is a living history museum and not a fine art museum however in There are several examples of Dixon artwork throughout the buildings. These are very fine reproductions. The current art market for Dixon paintings causes them to be very rare. People seeking to buy  artwork need to be prepared to disclose  a budget and expectation for such purchase. We will then make an effort to obtain such. During the winter months all the power and water is turned off. Tours may be available depending on the weather.
