Dr. Bruce Bugbee is Founder of Apogee Instruments and USU professor in the Plants, Soils and Climate Department.  Diana and Bruce are the current owners of the Crockett Home.

About the home: The Alvin D. Crockett Home on Crockett Avenue is significant both for its architecture and as the home of two generations of the Crockett family. The unique architecture, characterized by the steeply pitched roof with multiple dormers, reflects the Gothic Revival period. At the time of its construction in 1887, the house was one of the most elaborate homes in the Island neighborhood. Alvin D. Crockett was the first mayor of Logan and his son, John A. Crockett, also served as Logan’s mayor.

About the garden: Each year, the West-Bugbee family creates garden art at their historic Logan home for the people of Cache Valley to enjoy. This year, the garden is a salute to (Richard) Buckminster Fuller, an American architect, systems theorist, author and designer. He also developed numerous inventions, mainly architectural designs, and popularized the widely known geodesic dome which will be the centerpiece of their garden this year.
