Louisiana Travel Writers Come To Town

The Dorcheat Historical Association Museum was the gathering place for a Sunday breakfast hosted by Travel Host Magazine of Shreveport on November 20th, 2011.   A group of nine Louisiana Travel writers were guest at the museum on Sunday morning for a wonderful breakfast prepared by Mrs. Charlotte Martin.  Main Street Coordinator; Pattie Odom and Tourism Director; Lynn Dorsey were in charge of the days agenda which started at the museum for breakfast and a tour.  After a guided tour of the museum by museum director Schelley Brown Francis the group was then taken on a driving tour of Minden’s Historic Residential District by Francis.  Around noon the group toured Minden’s Main Streets for a little shopping and a trip to Minden’s Art on Main Studio.

Travel writers often come in groups to our area to see what kinds of interesting things are going on in different parts of the state.  This is a tourism based group so this is a great way for Minden to show what we have to offer in our area.  Can’t wait to see what great stories come out of their visit!
