We will meet at the Dr. Sloan Library in Zanesfield at 7:00 p.m. Polly Bargar, librarian at the Dr. Sloan Library, will provide a tour of the library and enlighten us on its 107-year-old history. The library has been in continuous service since its inception, and is located in the heart of Zanesfield at 2817 Sandusky St.
After the Dr. Sloan Library tour, we will take a short walk to the Helen Wonders Blue Park where the Ebeneezer Zane Cabin in located. Mary Mortimer, author of Reflections of Zanesfield, An Historical Scrapbook, will show us the interior of the Zane Cabin and talk about the Zane family and the early history of Zanesfield.

Logan County History Center’s
Salute to Logan County Fraternal Organizations
Saturday, August 28th, 2021
The Logan County History Center is excited to host our first open house in twenty months with our Salute to Logan County Fraternal Organizations and Bellefontaine’s Bicentennial! This open house was scheduled for April 2020, but we had to cancel it due to the COVID-19 Pandemic shutdown. Even though Bellefontaine is now 201 years old we still feel like both themes of the open house need to be saluted for their importance to our county’s history.
The History Center will feature an exhibit dedicated to the history of fraternal orders (and other similar organizations) in Logan County’s history and present. The exhibit showcases some of the History Center’s fascinating uniforms, artifacts, and archives from several of these organizations, as well as numerous artifacts on loan from local fraternal orders and individuals.
The History Center will also be celebrating Bellefontaine’s bicentennial – plus a year! The exhibits include artifacts, photographs and archival materials illustrating Bellefontaine’s rich history. As we have done with the bicentennial celebrations of West Liberty (2017), Logan County (2018) and Zanesfield (2019), the museum will have multiple exhibits on Bellefontaine’s history throughout the History Center.
The exhibits and open house will be in conjunction with the city’s bicentennial celebration on the evening of August 28th. It will be a downtown “block party”. There will be a variety of live local musical groups and a disc jockey with a Laser Light Show to finish the evening. There will be a variety of food trucks and a D.O.R.A. in place. The Bellefontaine High School Band play as well. The event will include a display of vintage automobiles and characters (in costume) representing individuals who helped shape our community over the last 200 years.
More information will be coming as the event nears.
The Logan County Museum is open Wednesday through Sunday from 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm.
Please check back frequently for special events, we will post them on our website and Facebook page.
