The town of Logan was founded in 1859 by settlers sent by Brigham Young to survey for the site of a fort near the banks of the Logan River. They named their new community “Logan” for Ephraim Logan, an early fur trapper in the area. Logan was incorporated on 17 January 1866.  Brigham Young College was founded here in 1878 (but later closed), and Utah State University – then called the Agricultural College of Utah – was founded in 1888.
