Sprucedale Farm, Dixon Family


"Sprucedale" was the family name for the 200 acre home farm on Lot 14, Concession 4, Trafalgar Township. John Dixon, sometimes spelled Dickson, first built a log home, then a frame house and then in 1861, a stately brick home. The farm had its own shops: blacksmith, carpentry, machinery. Two large windmills and a large bank barn. Machinery and wooden water pumps were manufactured on site. The house at 7713 Thompson Road was demolished by the developer against the wishes of the municipal council in 1991. It faced west on to Thompson Road and was south of Milton's Memorial Arena on the east side of Thompson Road. You can view more photos taken by the family during the fight to save the historic house and a short history of the family by clicking on the "Groups of Related Records" "Sprucedale Farm, Dixon Family" link below the photo in this record.
