The Dixie Iron and Wood Works was a business that graduated from horsepower to motor driven transportation. All manner of devices and accessories used to me made at Dixie Iron and Wood Works. Other businesses along this street provided automotive service, repair, and parking.
Today, this area of downtown has seen a resurgence of businesses. On the location of the former Iron Works, there are now businesses that provide resources for historical restoration and entertainment. Artisan Alley across the street hosts weekly markets and vendors that attract numerous visitors.
