Information from the Virginia Hanson Special Collections
Cache County Relic Hall
clear

Logan and Cache Valley in general is blessed with strong pioneer history. This heritage is often represented in buildings, many of which are still standing all around us. However, some have been razed through the years as is the case for the old Cache County Relic Hall.

Recently I communicated with Elisabeth Carroll of Salt Lake City who has written a history of this structure. Beginning as an old stone barn in the late 1860s, the building later became part of Brigham Young College campus, and finally a Relic Hall for the Daughters of the Utah Pioneers in 1927. It may have been heavily damaged after the 1962 earthquake and subsequently razed, but the exact date is unknown.

Feel free to contact me if you have any further information you would like to share.
