Village Green,  Main Street


The Village Green, located at 55 Main Street, was at one time property that was built and owned by Charlie Towle.   The town purchased the land and buildings from Robert and Colette LeTarte on August 5, 1997, razed the buildings in September and built the G. Dana Holt Gazebo in 1999.   The .39 acre plot of land is for everyone’s use.   Several concerts, weddings, family gatherings and town-sponsored events have taken place since its inception.   The “Wall of Honor” graces the barn door of the Dixfield Historical Society and recognizes various citizens for contributions made to the Village Green and other endeavors.

Legend of Bullrock


Bullrock, the Dixfield Moose, is named in memory of a moose of local legend. According to this legend, a wandering moose journeyed from the back side of Dixfield’s Sugarloaf Mountain. As he approached the rock formation now known as Bull Rock, he became so entranced with the beauty of the valley below that he lost his footing and plunged over the edge.
Today Bullrock’s spirit can be seen in the majesty of our forests and in the steadfastness of our people. He not only symbolizes Dixfield’s colorful past, but represents a strong and steady future for us all.
