We have vast holdings for genealogists. We have historical
records and early photographs for students looking for historical
information. Students use our records to find early
town maps and ancestral images. We have an amazing variety
of files and folders. Our photograph collection covers years
of Dixfield growth and change. Copies suitable for framing
may be ordered of any of our prints through our Photograph Album. Come and visit. There is something here to amaze everyone.
We have over 8,000 names in our database of people that were born, lived and/or died in Dixfield and Mexico, Maine, from the date of the first settlers. If you are looking for information, e-mail Jane at and she will research and e-mail the information to you for FREE.
