Manhattan NV Holds 1st annual Logan Days Celebration

June 10-11, 2017: The ever-enduring mining camp of Manhattan paid tribute to Nye County Sheriff Tom Logan who crossed the great divide in their town on April 7, 1906, when he was shot to death by a disorderly gambler in the red light district. The Manhattan Bar & Grill was the center of activity with events ranging from a ATV poker run to a watermelon eating contest for the kids.  Tom Logan's last surviving grandson (Richard Barton, see below) was on hand with a few other descendants to celebrate the life of a man who made significant contributions to Nye County at the turn of the 20th century as a rancher, business owner and family man.
