The Harrison County community of Logan was named after Union Army General John A. Logan. It is the only Iowa community to be located on three byways – the Loess Hills National Scenic Byway, the Western Skies Scenic Byway, and the Lincoln Highway Heritage Byway. With these three byways and the Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail nearby, visitors may think that all roads lead to Logan!
