The Madeline House was built in 1905 for its namesake, daughter of Jim Baker and wife Marina, Madeline Baker Adams.
The home was built with money Madeline made freighting between Baggs and Rawlins after her husband died in 1896 over a water dispute. In the home, she raised four children, with two--Bill and Johnny--living with her there until her death in 1948. Johnny never left the home or Dixon. The residence stayed in the family until 2010 when Paul and Fran McAllister and their family donated the house. Shortly after, it was moved to the museum grounds.
