Logan County Virginia


Map of Va: Logan CountySettlement of the region began in the 1790s, and Logan County was formed in 1824 from portions of Giles, Cabell, Tazewell, and Kanawha counties. The county was named in honor of Logan, an Indian chief of the Mingo tribe who played an important role at the Battle of Point Pleasant in 1774. In 1830 additional parts of Cabell and Kanawha were added to Logan. In 1831 Logan lost land to newly-formed Fayette County. Boone County was formed in part from Logan in 1847, and Wyoming came wholly from Logan's territory in 1850. In 1868 there was the exchange of a single farm from Logan to Wayne County. Finally, in 1895, Mingo County was created from Logan County.
