December 14, 1875
The name of present-day Logan County was changed from Sarber County, with Paris named as the official county seat (the present-day county has two seats: Paris and Booneville). The legislature had been asked to change the name to Logan County in honor of James Logan, an early settler. Other incorporated towns in the county are Magazine, Blue Mountain, Caulksville, Ratcliff, Subiaco, Scranton, and Morrison Bluff. Although Logan County was not created until 1871, the area that is now Logan County has had a significant impact on the development of western Arkansas dating from territorial days. Some of the oldest settlements in western Arkansas were located there.
