Logan County was created on March 22, 1871, from parts of Franklin, Scott, Johnson and Yell counties. The county was named to honor James Logan, a pioneer who was in both the territorial and first state legislatures. The county is a dual-seat county, with courthouses in Paris and Booneville. The landscape of Logan County is rolling farmland, forested ridges, isolated mountains, and lakes. Logan County holds a wealth of natural and scenic beauty, including the highest point in Arkansas — Mt. Magazine, which is 2,753 feet high. It rises from the Ozark National Forest where, on a clear day, you can see for 40 miles. The mountain also is within the boundaries of the Mt. Magazine Wildlife Management Area. A part of the Ouachita National Forest extends into the county, making it one of only two counties in the state to include two national forests. Camping, hiking, picnicking, swimming, and many recreational activities are plentiful. Just north of the forest is Blue Mountain Lake, an impoundment on the Petit Jean River, with hunting in addition to water activities. Subiaco, a Benedictine abbey that was established in 1878 and thrives today as a monastery and academy for young men, is located in the county. The population of Logan County is 21,131 (2020 Census).
