The Dixboro post office was established by John Dix in 1825. It remained open with intermittent closures until 1905, when Rural Free Delivery started.
John Dix, a land promoter, founded Dixboro in 1824 and built a general store, barn, and grist mill. He sold his holdings and left for Texas in 1833.
The annual Dixboro Fair is held in August.
MoonWinks Cafe in the center of the village provides coffee, wifi, sandwiches, and a place to chit-chat.
