The history of Dixon Gallery and Gardens begins with two exceptional people, Margaret Oates Dixon (1900-1974) and Hugo Norton Dixon (1892-1974). As philanthropists and community leaders, the Dixons ensured a richer and more varied cultural life for Memphians by bequeathing their home, gardens and collection of French Impressionist paintings for the enjoyment and education of future generations. The Dixons also established the Hugo Dixon Foundation, a separate entity that assists in funding the Dixon Gallery and Gardens in perpetuity.

In 1998, a horticultural complex opened at the Dixon that includes a library, meeting space, potting hub, greenhouses, and a glass conservatory. The Dixon was certified as a level 4 Arboretum in 2011, having 60 identified and labeled trees. Although a public institution, the Dixon receives no city, state or federal funding; it is supported by the Hugo Dixon Foundation, Dixon Gallery and Gardens Endowment Fund and by individual and corporate donors.
