Founding of Brigham Young College
clear

Founded in September 1878, Brigham Young College was owned and operated by the LDS church, the valley's majority religion even to this day. It was dedicated to fulfill Brigham Young's vision of creating a school where men and women could receive hands-on career training. It's greatest strength proved to be training professional teachers. It operated until 1926, and it's campus and buildings were donated to the City of Logan. Logan High continues to this day on the site of the old college.

For more information about the college, explore a USU digital collection.
