The Dixon Makes Donation to Natchez USCT Monument Project


We are grateful to the owners of The Dixon, John Weaver, Ginger Weaver, Walter Boone and Jennifer Boone, for their generous contribution of $1,000 to the Natchez US Colored Troops Monument Project. The Dixon made the donation Friday, April 22, 2022, during the ribbon cutting ceremony at its Grand Opening. The Dixon, located at 514 Main St., is a commercial development with retail space leased by Olivina’s and office space to be filled by Weaver Architects. Dixon Loft, located upstairs, is now accepting bookings as iconic, historic, and luxurious short-term rental, currently listed on VRBO.
