Dixon Commissary, Walkerville

I had a brief visit with the owner of this structure today, who graciously allowed me access to the property. He noted that it was once a commissary, owned by Alvin and Lizzie Dixon, the grandparents of well-known WTOC-TV anchorman, Sonny Dixon. It served as a general store and post office for Walkerville, as well. Stabilization and basic restorations have been made to insure its survival.
