Context/Comments
The most architecturally significant of the post-Civil War commercial buildings in downtown Natchez. Its merit is based on extraordinary integrity and a high degree of exterior finish. Founded in 1849, Dixons is the second-oldest business firm in Natchez, and the firm's ledgers and business papers constitute the single most important written source for studying the interior decoration of the city's nineteenth-century buildings.
