Enjoy the day exploring historic sites – learn about the local history, architecture, and culture of Webster Parish. Minden includes two National Register of Historic Places districts including several early buildings dating to the 1850s.
Go at your own pace and take in the local flare. Minden grew as lumber, cotton, and railroad industries arrived to create the parish seat. Minden’s historic sites have become backdrops for many popular movies in recent years. Join us along with friends and family as we visit over a dozen historic sites in Webster Parish!
