Dixon was established in the late 1800s and incorporated in 1887 making it the second oldest town in Carbon County and sixth oldest in the state; but has pretty much always been overshadowed by the surrounding towns of Savery and Baggs. Dixon was named after Bob Dixon one of the first fur trappers in the area along with the much more famous Jim Baker.
