Logan Fire Department History
clear

Local historian, Larry D. Christiansen has recently published an online article on the history of the Logan Fire Department during the 1880's and 90's. It details the gradual development of the department as it struggled to protect Logan with only a volunteer organization. The article also explains how the city acquired better fire suppression equipment during that period of time. Read his article to better understand the history of the department in the 19th century.

The fire department didn't become a paid or professional department until 1917. It has worked since that time to protect the lives and property of our city. Check out its website for current facts about the Logan Fire Department.

Welcome Back Logan High!
clear

Soon the halls of Logan High School will be flooded with students to begin yet another school year. This will be the 94th year of operation for the school, a fact likely unknown to many of its returning students.

The school was established in 1917, and with the closing of Brigham Young College in 1926, the school soon moved to its present location into the old college buildings. Although some of these buildings are now gone, there are many stories that can be told about the various corners, hallways, and classrooms where so much has happened through the years.

The library has a treasured one-of-a-kind resource for anyone interested in researching some of these stories. Tucked into the Logan History Room is our collection of Logan High yearbooks which go back to 1924 with only a few years missing. Come and reminisce of times past or research the teenage life of a past relative!

Library Directors - Past, Present and Future
clear

With the forthcoming retirement of Mr. Ronald Jenkins at the end of July, I have been asked to collect photographs of all the directors past and present. It has been an interesting project that has connected me with people everywhere from Ohio to California in search of photographs. There have been six directors of the library in the past 94 years since the library was established in July 1917.
