Long Description:
The Utah State Historical Marker, mounted on the front of the building, reads:

15 North Main

This three-story brick structure was built in 1895. A handsome Victorian Italianate cornice crowns the top of this straight-topped façade, while just below is the name of the original owner J. R. Edwards. John R. Edwards was one of the first settlers to arrive in Logan in 1859. He constructed this building for use as a saloon and billiard hall. The third floor was used as a lodge room for the ACUW. After an altercation between the owner and the president of the local college, notices were posted to exclude minors from the J. R. Edwards Saloon.

Marker placed in 2007
