The lawyers of child sexual abuse in Logan presents to you this article on the neighborhood. We encourage residents and visitors to learn about the history of Logan and more.

Short History of Logan

Logan is a neighborhood within the upper North Philadelphia section of the City of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Part of a plantation owned by James Logan, adviser to William Penn, it was one of the earliest suburban communities in the city. In 1928, the Broad Street subway was opened. Along with a thriving network of streetcars and bus routes, it helped the neighborhood develop and provided residents with easy access to the rest of the city.

Until the 1970s, Logan was a predominantly Jewish neighborhood. As Korean people began moving into the area and establishing businesses, other ethnicities also relocated there. However, by the mid-1980s, Koreans had moved out of the neighborhood for others in the city, like Olbey and Cheltenham.

Today, Logan has a population of 20,980 people. It is bordered by the neighborhoods of Fern Rock to the north, Olney to the east, Feltonville to the southeast, Hunting Park to the south, Germantown to the west, and Ogontz/Belfield to the northwest.

Stenton, or the James Logan Home, is a mansion on North 18th Street in Logan. Once the country home of James Logan – a Chief Justice of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court and colonial Mayor of Philadelphia – it was constructed between 1723 and 1730 and designed by master builder John Nicholas. Named after Logan's father's Scottish birthplace, it remained in the Logan family until 1910, when it was acquired by the City of Philadelphia.

Today, the mansion is a historic house museum and part of the Historic Germantown Historic Society. It is a fine example of early American Georgian architecture. On January 12, 1965, the home was designated as a National Historic Landmark (NHL) and listed on the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP).
