Log Cabin Home Frontier Village
in Loy Lake Park West side of
US 75 & Loy Lake Rd.
Blacksmith Micajah C. Davis (1790-1860), one of the founders of
Grayson County, erected this cabin about 1840 at Iron Ore Creek settlement
near present Denison. The pioneer home was built of hand-hewn oak logs
with a plank floor. Sold in 1870 to Josephus R. Ansley (1826-1873) and
his wife Gilley (1826-1915), the cabin was later occupied by their son
Will (1861-1952). Mr. and Mrs. John Summers purchased the structure in
1953 and donated it in 1972 to the Old Settlers Village. Recorded Texas
