Founded here in 1848, Logtown was home to the Weston Lumber Company, founded in 1889, which became one of the largest lumber milling operations in the United States during the 1920s. By 1961 the last 250 residents were removed to make way for the buffer zone needed for engine testing at the John C. Stennis Space Center for NASA's Apollo Moon Program.
