The original Dixie County Courthouse. Picture from Jared Anton's collection.

     Dixie County was created in 1921 from the southern regions of Lafayette County. The name honors the lyric designation of the South.  The original county seat was Old Town, later moved to Cross City.  Two roads crossed here at a village originally as Hitchcock.  There are few historic structures in Dixie County.
