Northern Pacific Railroad Montana


Once known as Jocko City, this community served as a division point for the Northern Pacific Railroad. By 1904, the town had acquired an adequate population, so Charlie Shelledy opened the first post office. Jocko City was later renamed Dixon in honor of former Governor Joseph Dixon. Today, the community is most famous for its bar. Not only has the Dixon Bar held the longest continuous Montana liquor license, but the bar has also been featured in the New Yorker magazine.
