150 Year Old Minute Book

The City of Logan will celebrate its sesquicentennial on January 17th as the city's charter was granted by the Territorial Assembly on January 17, 1866. The first council minute book details the efforts to organize the first administration: an election was held on March 5, 1866 and on March 14th the elected officials met to officially organize under the charter.

Over the past year an effort was made with Utah State University to digitize this minute book which covers the years 1866 to 1886, the first twenty years after the incorporation of the city under charter. In addition, the original council book is now on display in the Virginia Hanson Special Collections room of the Logan Library.

Thanks goes to the Digital Public Library of America and the Mountain West Digital Library for funding the digitization of this minute book.
