Voices of Dixon
Oral Histories from the Embudo Valley
Voices of Dixon is an oral history project featuring voices of residents of Embudo and Dixon. From 2002 to 2004, local farmer and writer Harvey Frauenglass recorded interviews with 14 community members. The voices span the time period from the 1920s to the present. Summaries of these interviews are presented here for reading or downloading.
What was Dixon like in 1932? What was the Brooklyn Cottage Hospital and who do you know that was born there? Stories of Dixon, old and new!
History of Embudo Presbyterian Mission
For many years, Charlotte Valdez has been documenting the history of the Embudo Presbyterian Mission. Here you will find a History of the Embudo Presbyterian Church that she has written. The history includes a timeline showing important events in the life of the church and in the Dixon/Embudo community.
Charlotte has also collected many photos and writings documenting the Mission history from it's beginnings in 1889 to the present time. You will find the voices of missionary doctors and teachers and community members. You may recognize faces of your parents, grandparents or even yourself!
