Established on the west side of the Muddy River in 1865, Logandale was originally named St. Joseph. It was moved and renamed New St. Joseph, or St. Joseph #2 in 1868, by settlers driven out of their first town of Saint Joseph, Nevada on the east side of the Muddy River when it burned down. It also acquired the post office established in the old town on August 26, 1867.

The new Saint Joseph like the other Mormon settlements in the Moapa Valley was abandoned in 1871 due to a tax dispute with the state of Nevada. Its post office closed in October 1871 but became active again on in May 1876. Following the Mormon return to Overton in 1880, in November 1883 the post office operations were moved there.[3]: 208 

The town began to revive in 1912 around a railroad station with the name Logan, which some believe was named for a Civil War veteran who settled on the abandoned town site, although this has never been documented. It was subsequently renamed Logandale because the mail kept winding up in Logan, Utah.[4]
