  • Wonderful gallery and Historical roadside stop. The gallery had good diversity and selection of items for sale. The homesite/museum of Maynard Dixon was quite interesting and well cared for.
  • I spent a good part of the day at the Maynard Dixon living history museum in Mt Carmel. The Dixon living history museum is a elegant south western museum. With many new SW Artists represented. As a profession photographer who admired Ansel Adams images and was friends with Maynard Dixon. The photographs on display this spring 2019 at the museum is first rate. The exhibit in the museum from the Hiller & Powell expedition is an amazing collection of early photographs of the native people of that time. 116 original albumen photographs by Jack Hiller from the 1872 John Wesley Powell Expedition. Executed between 1872 and 1875, these images depict native Americans in the region surrounding the base camp of Powell in Kanab,Utah and the surrounding areas of Southern Utah, Northern Arizona, Northern Nevada and areas along the Wasatch front. From a historical perspective this southwest museum should not be missed if what to learn more about the history of this land.
