The Dorcheat Historical Museum located at 116 Pearl Street is a timeline of not only our local area but of outside events that affected our parish. Everyone is encouraged to drop by and see what an amazing job local artist Larry Milford has done in the last 19 months. This museum is something that everyone in Minden should be very proud of and a place that everyone should visit on a regular basis. There is always something new at the museum.
March will be standing room only with football great Charlie Hennigan. April is Confederate History Month and May will be a moving tale of World War II from the Elshout and Vandernoord families. There will be a summer break in June, July and August. We will pick up again in September, with the finale set for October. The popular events will be $5 per person this year with all money benefiting the Dorcheat Historical Association Museum.
Held at Christopher’s, 615 Main St. in downtown Minden, La. Doors open at 5:30 with refreshments served at 6:00. Admission to each event is $5.00 per person. First come first serve seating. Guests are asked to provide their favorite appetizer or dessert. For more information contact Schelley Brown at 318-423-0192.
