With its distinctive red-bricked Main Street lined with shops, banks and churches, old-time charm pervades downtown Minden. History buffs will find plenty to explore in Minden's historic districts with their antebellum and Victorian-era homes--- or at Minden Cemetery, which includes soldiers' graves from Civil War battles fought nearby. Just outside Minden, the Germantown Colony and Museum offers a glimpse of what life was like in an early 19th century settlement created by followers of the German-based Utopian Movement. Minden is also a gateway to outdoor recreation galore at destinations like Dorcheat Bayou and Lake Bistineau, teeming with largemouth bass and the Caney Lakes Recreation Area with its numerous trails, campsites and lakes. The Webster Parish Fair comes to Minden in October with rides, games and a parade through downtown, while the Moess Art Center and City Farm combines art and agriculture and hosts annual events like the Spring Arts Festival.
