Flashback Friday: The Dixon's pool becomes the Hughes Pavilion

In 2003, construction was completed on on of the newest additions to the Dixon Gallery and Gardens, the Hughes Pavilion.  The Hughes Pavilion is directly over Mr. and Mrs. Dixon's swimming pool.  The swimming pool had already been covered and made into a patio of sorts before the construction of the Hughes.  In fact, the pool is still under the Hughes Pavilion and used as the main source of irrigation throughout the Dixon property.  The Hughes Pavilion was a lovely addition to the Dixon Gallery and Gardens, and it provides an invaluable space for Dixon events and outside events, such as weddings.  It is one of the most beautiful places in town to host a wedding reception, and you can find a new bride and groom there celebrating many Saturday evenings throughout the year.

If you want more information about using the Hughes for your next special occasion, go to the Facility Rental page of the Dixon website.
