Logan History Index

Several years ago we began to create an online Logan History Index. As part of this project, we have gradually been entering in the indexes or creating indexes for the various local histories, biographies, genealogies, and other materials in our collection. There are now over 90,000 index listings from 65 different sources. Some of the books have never been indexed before!

Why is this important? We have found a treasure trove of historical facts locked away in these various materials, sometimes extremely difficult to find. We hope that by creating this index researchers will be able to locate valuable pieces of their family and local history.

Come and try it out or volunteer YOUR time to this effort.

From Logan's History

1888

~ The City of Logan purchased the Logan Electric Light and Power Company from Garff and Lundberg and moved the equipment to 300 West. The City had purchased half of the stock in the company in 1886. This was one of the first cases of municipal ownership of a power company in Utah.
