 Brief History from Kansas State Historical Society:

 Logan County was named for Civil War General John A. Logan of Illinois. Containing the cities of Oakley (part), Russell
 Springs and Winona, the county was organized on September 17, 1887, by J. G. Perryman; Joseph Jones; J. W. Kerns; N. C.
 Phinney; and R. P. McKnight.

 The discovery of the mineral nickel in 1888, and the beginning of the quarrying industry of lime and sandstone in the late
 1880s contributed to the economy of the county.
