Where in Logan County is the Melon Car

The Melon Car will make a special appearance at a secret location on Wednesday, September 29. The first person to solve the clue as to where the car will be on Wednesday will win a prize.



With 2 centuries of service we were founded in 1903

Our goal is to hand you a new property key

Handling escrows, abstracts, insurance and more

We are located downtown with an office on the first floor

Logan County is not the only county we serve

But we take pride in our relationships  giving customers what they deserve.


Send in your guess or call the office 735-2385. The first person to guess correctly is the winner. A person can only win once every six months, and employees of the business hosting the Melon Car that week are not eligible to win. Only Chamber members in good standing can participate in the Melon Car contest.
