Property Description

Located a short drive north of Minden, the Germantown Colony Museum tells the story of a small group of settlers led by the Count and Countess von Leon who made their way into the isolated wilderness of north Louisiana to establish a pure Christian community, their own "kingdom of heaven." The poor Count died of yellow fever along the Red River, but his wife continued on and managed to establish a remarkable settlement that endured for the next 40 years. Call for hours of operation.


Call for hours and directions. Site is under construction and expected to open in 2014.
