New Book To Benefit the Museum




This book could be called Minden, Louisiana:1838-1938, but it's not really a history. When I Was a Little Girl and After, Too is the memoirs of a Southern lady who lived her life in the middle of her family's history. Treeby Miller Andress--a Minden High School and Newcomb College graduate, teacher, wife and mother of three--provides a humorous account of her own early days in Minden and a somewhat more serious account of her ancestors' lives. They were prominent business, civic and church leaders for the entire hundred years covered. This book was compiled by son, Thad Andress as a loving memorial to his grandmother and mother. Click on card for information to order book. Cost is $15 plus $5 for ship and handling.
Mail you checks to Dorcheat Museum
P.O. Box 1094 Minden, La. 71058 or visit the museum at 116 Pearl Street.
