Logan Township - along with a church and some houses at Bethel, there was also education in the area very early on in the history of the county. This school was gone by 1900.
Bethel School, Attica, IN, burned 1916. A new school was built in the same place during the summer of 1916 but it closed about 1925 when the new Logan Township School was built. Bethel Church seen in the background was built about 1850 and is still standing and operating. Bethel dates back to the time of the first settlements of the area and is a very historic site.
