The Historic Nature of Dixon Middle

Check out this video and write-up Provo City’s Landmarks Commission did on Dixon Middle:

“A unique treasure in Provo history, Dixon Middle School dates back to the years prior to the Depression. The school honors the Henry Aldous Dixon pioneer family, who served many within the Provo community. Joseph Nelson, one of area’s premiere architects, designed the original structure, with its brick gables and distinctive stonework battlements. His design philosophy can readily be seen in this building–a message of tradition, power, and respect for education.”
