History[edit]

The birth of Logan Reserve came in 1862, when 500,000 acres of the Logan Agricultural Reserve were released for use by settlers. Cotton was the first crop grown, and in 1864 to 1865 a small bark church/school became the first public building to be erected. Early settlers hailed from Yorkshire and timber-getting and farming were the primary industries during the 1890s and remained important through to the early 20th century, when tobacco growing was taken on.
