History & History Related Items

Minden history:

Minden was established in 1905 as a railroad town with a train depot, a central area park and a planned residential and business area. The town was completely planned before it even began creating a good guide for future growth. Minden was named after Minden, Germany, near the birthplace of H.F. Dangberg. The town remained quite stable for many years. Eventually, in the mid twentieth century, new subdivisions of homes began to appear with more growth coming in the 1970's.
