The Logan Area Historical Museum is owned and operated by the
Logan Area Historical Society,
a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt, Kansas not-for-profit corporation.
The Museum is located within the historic "Dye" Building, built
by Elmer Dye in 1905.  There are two floors housing
an assortment  of exhibits and displaying unique items
of historic importance to the Logan trade area. 
We also have a new addition at the rear of the Museum,
housing antique automobiles and farming equipment.

Episcopal Church

Registered with the Kansas State Historical Society, this landmark is a monument to the fine craftsmanship of builders of the era. The Church of the Transfiguration was constructed in 1890 of native limestone and is surrounded by buffalo grass. The key and a brochure are available at the Hansen Museum, which is open seven days a week.


Logan Lake

Due to the lack of moisture the past 5 years, the Logan Lake has struggled to keep enough water to keep stocked with fish.  We hope that our lake will soon be back to the scenic Logan Lake that it has been in the past.
