A view in downtown Logan
I found Logan to be a pretty town with a lot of Anywhere-America architecture. But there is a historic district in the downtown area and there are several large religious structures jutting above the horizon everywhere in town. There is also the very excellent Utah State University main campus in Logan.
Logan was founded by a group of settlers sent to the area to establish a presence and a military fort, should there ever be the need. They named their new settlement after Ephraim Logan, a fur trapper known to have worked the area earlier.
Brigham Young College was founded in Logan in 1878 by Brigham Young himself, just 23 days before he died. The college operated as a college/high school for many years until the physical plant was sold to the city of Logan and became the core of Logan High School.
The Agricultural College of Utah was founded in Logan in 1888 and grew until it became today's Utah State University.
