Did you know?

Paxton is known for its downtown Christmas tree.

Every year a Christmas tree is donated by a local family, and with the help of city and local utility workers, the 40 to 60-foot (18 m) evergreen (with a manhole serving as a giant tree stand) becomes a beacon of light in the downtown.
