Logan County Historical Society & Museum

Logan County Historical Society & Museum

Thousands of hours of volunteer work have made it into an extensive museum with approximately 10,000 square feet of exhibit space to display artifacts, documents and other historic items from all over Logan County. The Society also has a satellite exhibit at the Logan County Fairgrounds, where a restored railroad caboose is on permanent display. The Orr Mansion, currently undergoing a careful restoration, is now part of the Logan County Museum. The Orr Mansion took two years to build and cost $40,000. The Greek design of the colonnades that support the porch and portico was followed throughout the home. The Logan County Historical Society recently has overseen extensive architectural restoration of the Orr Mansion, concentrating special attention to the third-floor ballroom, a stained-glass window in the second floor and the tile roof. Restoration of the mansion will continue in the years to come.
