Dixona, in Dixon Springs, Smith County, was built in several stages and is a very unusual and beautiful home. The original two story log central section was built c. 1787-88 by Revolutionary War veteran Tilman Dixon. Louis Phillippe, the future King of France, stayed here in 1797 with his brothers. He reported in his journal “had at Major Dixon’s, the luxury of coffee, and two beds for four.” Flanking two story brick wings and porches were added c. 1858 by then-owner Col. James Vaughn, a Mexican War veteran. Dixona is privately owned and was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1973. It has been protected in recent years by a conservation easement with the Land Trust for Tennessee.
