DIXON

As the Host City of the Little Snake River Valley Rodeo, Dixon, like the entire valley, has never strayed far from its western roots. Named for the trapper, Bob Dixon, the town has a wonderful charm and laid-back style. The Dixon Town Hall is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Built in 1911, the Dixon Club has been a longtime watering hole for weary travelers passing through the valley. Its walls are covered with antiques and mementos of the area, so make sure to set aside a few extra minutes to explore and enjoy this piece of local history.

The towns of Savery, Dixon, and Baggs, follow the line of Savery Creek as it crosses the valley, providing irrigation for the expanses of farmland all around. Few places offer as much for sportsmen and adventurers as the Little Snake River Valley. Hunting, fishing, and camping, the valley has it all. The wide-open country ensures an experience that is hard to find anywhere else. Are you up to the challenge?

Among the landmarks of the Dixon/Savery area is the Little Snake River Valley Museum, which is on the National Register of Historic Buildings. It’s open from Memorial Day to late October, which gives visitors a chance to see and enjoy the rich history of the area. An important part of that history is the two-story log cabin sitting on the museum grounds. This cabin was built by, and was the long time home of, Jim Baker. Baker was an important figure in the valley, first as a mountain man and explorer, then later as one of the original settlers and local traders. Nearby Baker Peak is named for him. Baker and his wife, along with other family members, are buried in the Baker Family Cemetery a mile outside of Savery.

Ghost Town of Battle was first established as a community for miners and loggers. Mining occurred at Rudefeha and Rambler two local miners where the town people worked. The ore mined from Rudefeha by Battle's population would then be shipped to Encampment to be smelted. When the mines closed the town slowly died into a ghost town. Battle township is located along Scenic Byway 70 near Battle Pass the towns namesake.
