A cotton gin, which was converted to a sugar mill, was built at Loganholme in 1867. The existing ferry crossing at Loganhholme, known as the Beenleigh Ferry, established in the 1870s, was facing increased delays by the 1920s as vehicle traffic passing through the area increased dramatically. A road crossing from Loganholme to Beenleigh was opened in July 1931. The bridge here was duplicated in May 1968 and rebuilt in 1999 when the Pacific Motorway was widened.

Until 1949, Loganholme was within Shire of Tingalpa.
