Continuing our journey through the cabin scenarios, we learn a little about Ivory Joe Taylor. This is Carol’s fictionalized manager of the Sugar Shack. The cabin itself was brought in from the Brazos River bottom. The bedside photo depicts the cabin as it once was when sharecropper families resided in it. Here is the story of Ivory Joe Taylor as fictionalized … Read More

The Batts family history is forever intertwined with 7F Lodge. Craig and Carol completed their final “6 Flags over Texas” representation with the Batts Ferry Log Cabin to depict the Republic of Texas period.

After working at 7F for a while, I have begun to notice what I would call “inspirational messages” scattered throughout the property. From floorboards to walls to door frames to support beams, these words are written anywhere Carol (the original owner) could think of.
