HIAWATHA DIXON HOUSE
1898

This house was built in 1898 for Hiawatha Dixon (1863-1907), a descendant of Yorkshire settler Charles Dixon, on a Bridge Street lot purchased from Capt.Peter Hanson. It has had a number of owners over the years and has been well maintained with most of the original features intact.

The two and a half storey structure is a fine example of the Queen Anne Revival style with typical steeply-pitched roof and assymetrical façade. The porch, which has been glassed in, has base panels, and is surmounted by a balcony with railing. The front door is framed by a transom and sidelights. The two-storey bay on the right is topped by a gable with fan-shaped ornamental window. There are two unusual triangular dormers on the front of the roof, one with a triangular window, and one with a square 9-paned window surrounded by stylized thistle ornamentation.

This building is within the Town of Sackville Municipal Heritage Conservation Area A.
