    SEE THE MURALS

    by Rich62 Updated Jun 11, 2011

    THERE ARE A FEW NICE MURALS painted on buildings in Minden. This one is near the southwest corner of the town square. It depicts the town square in 1912.

    Another pic shows the new (as of 2007) welcome signs at the edge of town. very nice.

    And a third photo shows the mural on the ceiling of the Minden Opera House.

    The fourth photo shows stars on the ceiling of the Opera House during a performance. There are even shooting stars that go across the ceiling. Pretty neat.

    Bird Watching

    by racerroy Written Apr 1, 2007

    The Sand Hill crane migration happens in late Febuary to first weeks in April and is spectacular.

    The Harold Wrap Pioneer Village Museum has everything from 1830's on on how America developed and you can spend a day or two just seeing that.
