Logan, also known as Mount Pleasant, a rural community sixteen miles east of Carthage on Farm Road 31 near the Louisiana state line in eastern Panola County, was first settled before the Civil War. In 1880 the Mount Pleasant Missionary Baptist Church was organized at the site, and a school, also known as Mount Pleasant, began operating just after 1900. A post office, named Logan for nearby Logansport, Louisiana, operated at the community from 1900 to 1910.

In 2000 the population was forty.
