Hixville Village

 

Hixville Village is a historic district in Dartmouth, Massachusetts. The village was founded in 1785 as the center of religious activity in the area. At the crossroads of Old Fall River Road, Hixville Road, and North Hixville Road, Hixville Village developed over its history as a stop-over for travelers going between New Bedford and Fall River by stage coach, and later by rail road.

Some of Hixville’s current attractions include the general store, the First Baptist Church of Hixville, and Cornell Pond.

Hixville has retained its rural atmosphere, and contains a number of farms with goats, horses, cows, and chickens. There is also a new solar farm where a field of solar panels convert sunlight into useable energy.
