Settlers first came to this location on the northern banks of the Solomon River in 1870. The area was briefly called Deeversville. D. G. Hoover, one of the first settlers, renamed the town on June 2, 1873 to Logan after his army commander from Illinois, General John A. Logan. Little progress was made in the town during the first few years, but in 1878 several business men settled in the area. Logan soon became an enterprising town with flour and sorghum mills, along with other businesses such as general stores, hotels, and a bank.
The ethnicity of its settlers is unknown.
