DIXON PUBLIC LIBRARY ARCHIVES HISTORICAL COLLECTION
The Dixon Public Library's goal is to collect and preserve our historical heritage through acquisitions and donations of photos and family documents in the belief that an understanding of history can provide individuals and the community with connections to the past, a sense of belonging to the present, and responsibility for the future.
The HISTORIC PHOTOS and some of the PEOPLE FILES in the Dixon Public Library Archives Collection are stored in the library archives and may be viewed on this website or at the Library. More PEOPLE FILES are being added monthly and should be completed in the fall of 2010.

The 2006 Melville Historical Building Photo Survey was compiled by Hayward S. Melville, member of the Dixon Historical Society. You may locate these homes, businesses, schools and churches by doing a KEYWORD search using the name of the street or numerical address or both. All street names must be spelled out, no abbreviations. If you know the name of the original owner of a home, please let us now so we can add the name to the description.
We welcome additional photos and documents to add to our collections. If you have original documents, photos or copies of historical material that you would like to donate or loan to have scanned into the Library collection, please contact Library Archivist Shirley Parsons at 707-678-5447 or firstname.lastname@example.org
There is more material in the Library's Historical Collection to assist your research that may be viewed at the Library.
