Lady Lyric Turns 100
Thursday, 22 May 2014

The people of Cache Valley have a long tradition for loving the theater. After the unfortunate destruction of the Thatcher Opera House by fire in 1912, the elegant and practical Lyric Theater was constructed to help fill the void until a larger theater could be built. It was completed in 1913 and this year it celebrates its 100th birthday. This history of this gem of the community has been retold in a new hour long documentary.

Come and join us on one of the following days for a free showing of the film:

From Logan's History


May ~ When the LDS Church Board of Education voted to discontinue church run high schools and academies, Brigham Young College in Logan was forced to close its doors. Although the State of Utah assumed support of other academies in the state, Logan already had Utah Agricultural College.
