The Minden Inn

The Minden Inn, designed by Frederic J. DeLongchamps, was completed in 1916 and considered one of the finest small hotels on the West Coast. The elegant 44-room hotel was a favorite respite for countless Hollywood stars and celebrities who journeyed to Minden via the V & T Railroad in the 30's and 40's. It was also the central spot for social functions and served as a local watering hole with gambling operations until 1987. It was eventually purchased by Douglas County and remodeled to house county offices.
