Minden Real Estate
Welcome to Minden, NE!
Minden is known as Nebraska’s Christmas City for good reason. Beginning in 1915 when City Light Commissioner J.C. Haws aspired to impress the state convention of the G.A.R., lights were strung from the railroad depot to the town square. Weather problems prevented the lights’ use until Christmas time, when Haws found a new home for the lights: the courthouse dome! Now the spectacular Christmas Lights on the Kearney County Courthouse in Minden, NE can be seen for miles and have been a source of pride for the community and state.
Minden is a city in, and the county seat of, Kearney County, Nebraska, United States. The population was 2,923 at the 2010 census. It is home of the Pioneer Village museum complex.
