The Dix House is a historic home in Ormond Beach, Florida, United States. It is located at 178 North Beach Street. On September 6, 1989, it was added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places.

The Dix house was originally built by Colonel Dix for his two sisters. The second floor of the Dix House was built open and used extensively for a wide variety of purposes including an early wedding hall and meeting place. The second floor of the Dix House was the site that the colony of New Britain chose to become the City of Ormond.

More recently the Dix House suffered extensive damage in the hurricanes that visited the area in 2004. After a few different attempts, the most recent owners dramatically renovated the house with the intention of creating a bed and breakfast. It now boasts seven bedrooms (each with a private bath) and an elevator.
