Jesse Elvis Hendricks Log Cabin
(Frontier Village, Loy Lake Park)


A native of Missouri, Jesse Elvis Hendricks (1837- 1920) came to Grayson County in 1846. In1863-64 he built this log home five miles southwest of this site. It was originally a one-room cabin with a loft, but Hendricks and his wife, Susan Matilda (Dumas), added more rooms about1870, after the birth of their fourth child. The Hendricks' log cabin was moved to this site and restored in 1978.
