Tom Wadsworth gives a brief description of Dixon as it was in 1905 during a commemoration of Founders Day held Monday at Loveland Community Building. About 150 people attended the presentation, mainly focused on the winter revival held by Billy Sunday that year.  At the time of the revival Dixon was described as “ scene of spiritual dearth and intellectual desolation.” Saloons were prevalent and nearly all city council members were “saloon-keepers or their henchmen.”
