Minden Main Street

Minden Main Street has long been the center of activity in Minden, beginning with the first business opened by Minden’s founder, Charles Veeder. Since its establishment in 1835, Main Street has seen many changes, but remains today the heart and soul of Minden. The Minden Main Street program began in 1987 with a mission to preserve, our history by promoting economic revitalization and rehabilitation of our historic buildings. Minden Main Street is recognized as a Louisiana Main Street Community, a Louisiana Cultural Products District and a site on the National Register of Historic Places.

“You can tell the wealth of
a city by the success of its main street.”

– Mayor Terry Gardner
