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. The historic Main Street is best explored on a walking tour; an illustrated brochure is available from the Cache Valley Visitors Bureau located inside the historic Cache County Courthouse. Interesting buildings include St. John's Episcopal Church, representing Cache Valley's first non-Mormon denomination, and the Ellen Eccles and Lyric theaters.
When there was every reason in the world to stay away and see the ruins, one woman traveled to Greece to get to work.More
