If Cooksville enjoyed civic and commercial success, Dixie revelled in its importance as a place of worship and an agricultural centre.  Protestants in the southeastern section of Toronto Township worshipped at the early Union Chapel for many years.  The community was originally dubbed "Irishtown" for the many Irish Catholics who chose to settle here.  It was later named "Sydenham", before adopting name of "Dixie" in honour of a prominent Welsh pioneer doctor, Beaumont Wilson Bowen Dixie.  While Dixie's close proximity to Cookscille prevented it from developing a strong commercial character of its own, Dixie became a prosperous agricultural produce-oriented community, with garden markets dotting the Dundas Highway.  Dixie was also home to Toronto Township's first indoor ice rink.  Dixie Arena, the Dixie Beehives, and the Dixie Cold Storage Facility.
