This Victorian home has been an important part of Minden for nearly a century and a half.  Built from stacked timber, the house was home to Michael Brown, the town's treasurer, postmaster and justice of the peace, for 45 years.  In 1935, owners Dick and Laura Kirkwood built the cabins known as "Laurdic Tourist Accommodation" to accommodate visitors to the highlands.  It was renamed "Minden House" in 1981 by water colour artist Marion Hill who, with husband Stan, ran it during the 1980's.  Part of Minden's heritage tour, the house features an inviting wraparound veranda, whimsical alcoves, antique decor and furnishings.  Your hosts,  current owners Lesley and Gord Elliott are pleased to continue the tradition and welcome you to your Haliburton Highlands home away from home!
