This county was named in honor of General John A. Logan. A village in Arapahoe County was named for this gallant soldier.

"Fort Wicked." In the summer of 1820 Long's expedition traveled up the South Platte River, and a score or so of years later Fremont followed in Long's footsteps. In the '6o's this was the route of the Overland stages passing back and forth between Omaha and Denver. The intrepid and resourceful frontiersman, Hollen Godfrey, kept one of the stage stations on the line along the Platte. It was located near Merino. Godfrey was always on the alert, was never caught napping. Indians once swooped down upon his ranch, and a hot encounter ensued. A dozen or more of the warriors were killed or wounded before they were beaten off. After this " brush," the Indians named Godfrey's station " Fort Wicked." In the days of Indian fighting this was the only house on the stage line in Colorado that was not burnt. Up to 1869 travel was dangerous on the plains, and immigration to Colorado was checked. Mail coaches were ambushed and fired upon. Some large caravans were attacked. As a result, the Territory's growth was almost at a standstill before 1870.
