On this site from 1835 to 1924 stood the Citizens State Bank, originator of the "Dixie." In its early days, the bank issued its own $10 bank note, with the French work "Dix" for "ten" printed on the note's face. As the currency became widespread, people referred to its place of origin as "the land of the Dix," which was eventually shortened to "Dixieland." Through the song and legend, the word became synonymous with America's Southland.
