- Dixville, New Hampshire
Dixville (also known as Little Switzerland) is a township in Coos County, New Hampshire, United States. In New Hampshire, locations, grants, townships (which are different from towns), and purchases are unincorporated portions of a county which are not part of any town and have limited self-government (if any, as many are uninhabited).
Dixville was granted by the legislature to Timothy Dix, Jr., in 1805 and contained about 29,340 acres (118.7 km2); the price was $4,500. It was organized for voting purposes in 1960, and the village of Dixville Notch is commonly known as the first place to cast votes in U.S. elections. The original grant included the eastern portion (north of Wentworth's Location) now known separately as Dix's Grant.

The elevation of Dixville Notch is 1,887 feet (575 m) above sea level, in Dixville Notch State Park. (The term "notch" is the local equivalent of "pass" or "gap", and refers to a low place between mountains or mountain ranges.)
