Dixie

Dixie was near the site of later Dotson fourteen miles southwest of Carthage in southwestern Panola County. It was probably established after the Civil War. A post office opened there in March 1880 with Ebenezer Sistrunk as postmaster; it closed the next year. In the early 1880s the settlement had a general store, a mill, and a number of houses. By 1900 it was no longer shown on maps.

Adapted from the official Handbook of Texas, a state encyclopedia developed by the Texas State Historical Association (TSHA). It is an authoritative source of trusted historical records.
