Minden In Webster Parish
Webster Parish (County) is proud of the beautiful historic city of Minden, the parish seat located in the beautiful piney hills of northwest Louisiana. You’ll find this noteworthy city just thirty miles east of Shreveport, Louisiana and 4 hours east of Dallas, Texas on Interstate 20, Exit 47.
Minden, known as the Friendliest City in the South, is renowned for its historic downtown with original brick streets, antique shops, boutiques and quaint restaurants. Nearby, Minden’s beautiful historic residential district features more than 70 historic properties within walking distance of downtown, many on the National Register of Historic Places.
Transport yourself back in time with Minden’s new Gone with the Wind tour. Offering an authentic taste of the South, this adventure takes you on a private tour of the Bates- Irving home, one of the oldest homes in North Louisiana and the personal residence of Mrs. Frances Irving — a descendent of Margaret Mitchell, author of the American fiction bestseller, “Gone with the Wind.” Mrs. Irving will share family insights into the life of the famous author as you explore her beautiful plantation home and sip away at mint julips and other southern delights.
For some more old-world charm be sure to stay in one of the area’s many quaint B & B’s like the striking Huffman House Bed and Breakfast. This stunning Federal Style home dates back to 1918 and offers the perfect fusion of historic charisma and modern amenities. The Grace Estate B & B and Tearoom in Minden’s beautiful historic residential district also promises to enchant. Built in 1910, The Grace Estate has only recently become a venue for dining, receptions and elegant parties, as well as a bed and breakfast.
