Local Railroads
clear

The railroad was an important part of living in Cache Valley during the nineteenth century. Settlers first began arriving in 1856, and by 1868 the transcontinental railroad was completed just slightly west of here in neighboring Box Elder County.

Local community leaders began planning a branch line to Cache Valley in 1871. From that point on goods were easily shipped in and out of the valley, resulting in a better standard of living throughout.

Bear Lake Monster
clear

If you've lived in Cache Valley for any length of time, you may have heard about a monster just over the mountains in Bear Lake. The existance of the monster was reported by Mormon pioneers of the Bear Lake Valley as early as 1863, but you'll have to decide for yourself if you believe that it exists or not!

1875 Logan Bird's Eye View Map
clear

While organizing and sorting through some historical materials, I found an article which appeared in the Deseret News newspaper in January 1973. It detailed some of the history behind a bird's eye view map of Logan which now hangs on the wall in our special collections.

The map was given to former Mayor Fjeldsted by then librarian Virginia Hanson. The map appears to be an original from the nineteenth century and has since been digitized by USU Special Collections for inclusion on the Mountain West Digital Library.

Come in to the library to view this interesting piece of Logan history or contact me with any questions.
