Logan County, Ohio U.S. Census TIGER/Line map
Logan County, Ohio, located in west central Ohio, is primarily an agricultural area with rolling terrain. Amish Mennonites, largely from eastern Ohio and Mifflin County, Pennsylvania, settled in the southern part of the county beginning about 1840. West Liberty (1950 pop. 1,397), at the southern border of the county, is central to the Mennonite settlement which spills over into Champaign County to the south. In 1954 there were three Mennonite (Mennonite Church) churches in the community, including about 1,000 persons. Two of the churches, Bethel and South Union, and about two thirds of the Mennonite population in the area are located in Logan County. The Mennonite Orphans' Home, established 1898, was located in West Liberty.
