LOGAN TOWN CENTER

WELCOME

Logan Town Center is the traditional business and residential neighborhood at the heart of the City of Logan, the county seat of Hocking County.  Logan Town Center comprises more than half of the area of the original town of Logan, platted in the summer of 1816 as a personal venture by former U.S. Senator Thomas Worthington, who was then finishing the first of two terms as Ohio's governor.  The town is said to have been named by its citizens for Chief Logan of the Mingo Indians.  Chief Logan was the author of “Logan's Lament.”

Logan was established one mile below the "great falls" of the Hockhocking River, later known as the Hocking River.  In 1840 the section of the Hocking Valley Canal passing through Logan (between the City and the Hocking River) was completed, connecting Logan through Lancaster with the Ohio Canal.  The Hocking River, once provided a vital asset for industries that extracted the region’s natural resources such as coal, sandstone, iron, timber, oil and gas.  Today, the river helps attract over 3 million visitors to the region to relax and enjoy the natural, artistic and cultural assets and rural lifestyle we have to offer visitors and residents.

Main Street and the surrounding neighborhoods continue to be the center of business, government, fine historic homes, churches, and cultural and historical destinations in the Hocking Hills region of Ohio.  Our Logan Town Center business district is anchored by the Logan - Hocking County District Library, the Hocking County Historical Museum, The Bowen House community arts and education center, and City and County government offices.  It also provides unique destinations like the Washboard Factory, and friendly locally owned shops, restaurants and family friendly activities.

For a 3-minute tour of Logan Town Center, go to this slide-show the Hocking Valley Tourism Association posted on YouTube.

Logan Town Center, Inc. is a non-profit organization committed to the economic and cultural vitality of Logan’s original town center for the enjoyment and benefit of the residents and visitors in the Hocking Hills.

With over 200,000 SF of commercial space, there are opportunities for entrepreneurs to create destinations for resident and visiting customers.  To see examples go to our Available Spaces page.

ONGOING
Art Exhibit by Photo-Artist Melissa Green Krygier

Ms. Krygier's exhibit features a collection of photos called "Near the Water's Edge" along with recent photos she’s taken of selected historical buildings in Logan.
The artist describes her work as “photo artistry.” After taking a photograph, she often spends several hours editing and reworking it using complex digital techniques to get the effects she wants. People sometimes mistake her photographs for paintings.
Krygier, from Hide-A-Way Hills, particularly enjoys photographing birds and all things outdoors, but more recently, she has been drawn to photographing people at work and play.
The exhibit will be on display in The Artbreak located at 44 & 48 W. Main Street in Logan's historic town center. More of her work can be seen at www.MelissaKrygierphotos.com. Information: Carol Mackey at 740.380.1555
