Brogan in 1909, and when a post office was established in the locality on April 23 of that year, it was named for him.[1] Brogan is located on the north end of the now-abandoned Union Pacific Railroad branch line from Vale.[1]

It is part of the Ontario, OR–ID Micropolitan Statistical Area. As of the 2010 census the population was 90.[2]
