Logan, a thriving incorporated city of the third class in Phillips county, is located in Logan township on the Missouri Pacific R. R. and the Solomon river 15 miles southwest of Phillipsburg, the county seat. It is lighted with electricity, and has waterworks, a sewer system, a fire department, an opera house, 2 banks, a newspaper (the Republican), telegraph and express offices, and an international money order postoffice with four rural routes. The population, according to the census of 1910 was 714. Logan was founded in 1870 and named for Senator John A. Logan of Illinois. Very little growth was made during the first ten years. In 1878 a number of energetic men came in, and two years later the railroad was built, which gave things a new impetus. The postoffice was established in 1870. Logan was organized as a town in 1872, with A. B. Miller, trustee; and John Sears, clerk. It was organized as a city of the third class in 1880, with Charles H. Bridges, mayor; W. W. Gray, clerk; T. M. Bishop, Dr. Thomas, F. R. Hamilton, W. A. Johnson and Charles Smith, councilmen.
