Cogan House Township

Welcome to Cogan House Township

The township is named for David Cogan, a pioneer who settled on Larrys Creek in 1825. Cogan was one of the few settlers in the area for many years, but wearying of his isolation, he left his homestead in 1842, as did a neighbor named Carter. Cogan’s and Carter’s houses were used by hunters and travellers. The name Cogan’s House was given to the area, hence the name, Cogan House.
