Dixon, Illinois, My Home!

I love living in Dixon, Illinois and think it's a great place to raise a family! There's a lot of rich history in this town and plenty to do no matter what day of the week it may be and regardless of the time of year!

Some of the awesome attractions that we have here are the Ronald Reagan boyhood home where our 40th president spent a majority of his time growing up, the John Deere Historic Site, The Lincoln Monument in President's Park, and the Loveland Community House!

If you really want to take a step back in time check out my favorite attraction, the Franklin Creek Grist Mill and you will honestly feel like you are walking in a different century!

There are new job opportunities all the time here in Dixon, the community and involvement is great too! We have several different types of restaurants to choose from no matter what sounds good for dinner tonight! And the stores that we have give you the chance to truly find something that you won't find anywhere else!
