The Quilt Trail

The History of Logan County
Logan County, Kentucky,
in its present configuration, is situated in the southwestern part of the state and is one of the southern tier of counties bordering the northern Tennessee line. Logan County is bounded on the north by Muhlenberg and Butler Counties, on the east by Warren and Simpson Counties, on the west by Todd County, and on the south by Robertson County, Tennessee.
It is less than thirty minutes west of I-65 and the Natcher Parkway near Bowling Green, Ky. It is about one hour north of Nashville, Tennessee and the Nashville International Airport.
Russellville, the county seat, is almost in the center of the county. When the county was first formed as the thirteenth county, it was much larger. It still is the third largest county in the state. There are three smaller cities within the county, Adairville, Auburn and Lewisburg. Many additional small communities with unusual names and histories like "Dot", dot the landscape of the "Land of Logan".
Agriculture is an important factor in the countys economy. For decades, the tobacco crop was one of the largest in the state and the cornerstone for the "Tobacco Festival" which is now called the "Tobacco and Heritage Festival." The festival takes place in the County Seat of Russellville but it is very much a county wide event.
Civil War In Logan County
Logan County saw its share of turbulence caused by the Civil War. The railroad, which ran in a south westerly direction from Memphis Junction, south of Bowling Green, through the county, was heavily used for troop movement. The plundering by both sides of the conflict left much hardship in its wake. The Shakers of eastern Logan County suffered greatly because of their giving nature. Not only did they willingly feed the masses from the North and the South but each side took what they wanted, as well. It has been said that even the county was divided in half in addition to finding brother against brother.
There are several "fish stories" about the weathervane on top of the Logan County Court House. Some research has provided new information about why a big fish is our county symbol. Where shall we start? Let's read and find out!
