Dixie County was formed in 1921 from Lafayette County. The County Seat is at Cross City. The County fronts on the Gulf of Mexico but it does not have the beautiful beaches of neighboring counties to attract tourists. It is one of the state's least densely populated areas and averages only 15 people per square mile. Population in 1990 was 10,585. The region is a favorite with deer, turkey and wild pig hunters tourists. Dixie's largest private employers are timber companies. The major road into the county is US 19 and air service is available 60 miles to the east at Gainesville Regional Airport. The county's history includes a battle at Old Town on US 19, where Chief Billy Bowlegs met up with Andrew Jackson during Indian uprisings. Prior to the Civil War, Old Town was the site of a factory where Spanish moss was turned into clean, economical stuffing for mattresses and furniture. More History of Dixie County.
