This lovely home, referred to in the 1976 Sierra Madre Vistas as the "original hunting lodge," was also the home of the Dixon Family.
According to the Annals of Early Sierra Madre (1950), Mr. and Mrs. Willis Dixon, along with their daughter Lucille, came to Sierra Madre in 1887, and the home was built in the same year. Also that year, Mrs. Dixon became head of the public school, and she was said to be "a remarkable teacher."
So, I'm not sure when the hunting lodge part came in. Will have to figure that one out. Anyone have an idea?
