History

the text in this section is copied from an article in Wikipedia

The Arkansas General Assembly defined the state's 64th county on March 22, 1871, and named it Sarber County for John N. Sarber, the Republican state senator from Yell County who had introduced the resolution. The senator was viewed as a carpetbagger, and after the Reconstruction Era state government was replaced the county was renamed for James Logan, an early settler in the area, on December 14, 1875.
