Welcome to Hixson! Come Thrive With Us!
Named for Ephriam Hixson Jr., a pioneer who settled the area in 1830, this community enjoyed rapid growth soon after Tennessee Valley Authority completed the Chickamauga Dam on the Tennessee River in 1940. The first Hamilton County Courthouse was built near Dallas Bay and what is now Chester Frost Park. The community at North Chickamauga Creek was first called Lakeside after a “bottomless” lake that was near Ephraim Hixson’s home. The train station, Cincinnati Southern was first known as Lookout. However, to avoid confusion with another station by the same name near Lookout Mountain, it was changed to Hixson Station. Finally, the community came to be known simply as Hixson. A legion of Hixsons’ still live in the Hixson community and have held annual reunions since 1957.
