Dixie County was created in 1921 from the southern regions of Lafayette County.
The name honors the lyric designation of the South. The original county seat was Old Town, later moved to Cross City. Two roads crossed here at a village originally as Hitchcock. There are few historic structures in Dixie County. The County fronts on the Gulf of Mexico but it does The region is a favorite with deer, turkey and wild pig hunters tourists. Dixie's largest private employers are timber companies. The major road into the county is US 19 and air service is available 60 miles to the east at Gainesville Regional Airport. The county's history includes a battle at Old Town on US 19, where Chief Billy Bowlegs met up with Andrew Jackson during Indian Wars. Old Town was the site of a factory where Spanish moss was turned into furniture and mattresses The current courthouse, which sits a few blocks east of U. S. 19, is a modern one.
