Logan

Mormon pioneers created the permanent settlement of Logan in 1859, but the town didn't become prominent until 1888, when it was chosen as the site for Utah's land-grant agricultural college, now called Utah State University (USU). Logan is now the hub of the Cache Valley. Logan's historic Main Street is best explored on a walking tour; an illustrated brochure, available from the visitor information center, guides you along both sides and up a few cross streets. The more interesting buildings include St. John's Episcopal Church, representing Cache Valley's first non-Mormon denomination; the Ellen Eccles and Lyric theaters; and the Cache County Courthouse.
