Dixville

Just a few steps from the American border, on a promontory close to Cushing Falls, Dixville enjoys a great location. That’s what convinced Richard Baldwin Jr. to found this village in 1874, calling it Drew’s Mills, after the Drew family. An employee of the Grand Trunk rail shipping company and a Barnston pioneer, Baldwin ultimately left his nickname – Uncle Dick – as inspiration for the name of the municipality, which merged with Saint-Mathieu in 1995. Apart from remains of the sawmill and hydroelectric dam, local residents appreciate the simplicity of their churches of various denominations – the Baptist (formerly Methodist) Church (1869), St. Paul’s Church (1882), St. Cuthbert Anglican Church (1884), and the Saint-Matthieu (1915) and Sainte-Suzanne-de-Stanhope (1914) Catholic churches.
