How you helpSince 1989, the Society has grown and prospered as a volunteer organization, helped with funds from many people including the City of Bellefontaine, the villages, the townships, and on a regular basis, the Logan County Commissioners.
About ushe Logan County Historical Society has a long history. Our records show a historical society was organized in 1930 with O. K. Reames as its President. This group died out (perhaps due to the Great Depression), and in December, 1935, was reorganized, again with Mr. Reames as its president. The Society has minutes from a 1940 meeting of this group plus a treasurer's book from 1941 signed by F. M. Henry, treasurer. Sometime after this, the Society's records show no activity... perhaps World War II caused this group to die-out again. In December, 1945, another group met at the Sloan Library in Zanesfield and reorganized as the Logan Archaeological and Historical Society, and again it elected O. K. Reames as its president. In May, 1946, the group incorporated under the laws of the State of Ohio and this group exists today under the name of the Logan County Historical Society.
