History in a Pecan Shell

Logan was also known as Mount Pleasant (not to be confused with the Titus County Seat). Settled prior to the Civil War, the name was taken from the Mount Pleasant Missionary Baptist Church which was organized in the 1880s.

A school was in operation around 1900 and was also known as the Mount Pleasant school. The name change occurred when a post office was applied for and the name is said to come from the Louisiana town of Logansport. The post office closed in 1910 and by the 1930s the population was a mere 10 residents.

The current estimated population is 40 and the community still retains the church and cemetery.
