Dixon bought his lot when Bob Midyette divided his farmland naming the area ‘Neuse River Heights.’ The pine for the house came from the Roper Lumber Company where Dixon was a tugboat captain. The total cost to build the house was only $600. A tree beside the house yielded delicious pears that Duke Summer School boarders climbed through the upstairs windows to pick fruit.
