Note:
The imposing Queen Anne style house was built for Milton and Sallie Dillard Dixon. It is attributed to Ralph because "Mrs. Dixon's" house is cited as a model in the specifications in the agreement between Ralph and Mrs. Emma Leary for Queen Anne style residence which Ralph built for Emma and William Leary in 1897 from designs from George F. Barber. With its tall roof, diverse forms, and capacious porches, the Dixon-Powell House is among the state's prime examples of the Queen Anne style.
