The Samuel P. Dixon Farm is a historic farm near Ashland, New Castle County, Delaware. The property includes three contributing stone buildings: a house, a spring house and a tri-level bank barn. The house is a two-story, four-bay dwelling in two sections. The older section is dated to the late 18th or early 19th century, with an addition before 1830, about the time the barn was built.[2]

In the 20th Century, it became part of Ashland Farm, a Du Pont estate. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1986.[1]
