The pics featured in this post are of the Thatcher-Young mansion here in Logan. It is also where AVA (Alliance of Varied Arts) operates out of. More info. as well as the pictures can be found on their website: www.avaarts.org.
As a volunteer for AVA, I was notified of the need for the Thatcher-Young mansion to be cleaned as it is about to undergo some interior re-decorating. As a former Interior Design major, I remember how a former USU Interior Design professor of mine, Ms. Elizabeth Rogers, would always talk about the beautiful, turn-of-century homes and historical landmarks that Logan is so lucky to have.
The Thatcher-Young mansion is one of them, and as I stopped by to help out last night, found myself curiously thinking about why the floor plan is laid out the way that it is, and for what purpose it once served. I also began to imagine the type of people who once lived there, and what life was like during that time period.
My Grandpa Leo once said- no matter where you are, find out about its people. Find out about who they are and how they live. There is something to be learned about every place that you go, you just need to be willing enough to find it. I thought about his advice and decided to do some research about this historic mansion. So, even though Logan is a small town, and I've lived here once before, yesterday proved to me that something new can still be found in something old.
