Minden Stables

-A A +A
c. 1905. 1584 Esmeralda Ave.
  • (Photograph by Julie Nicoletta)

This large frame structure appears out of place at the end of Esmeralda Avenue and facing U.S. 395. The survival of a utilitarian building is remarkable given Minden's recent rapid growth. The old stables resemble a barn with a broad gable roof and board-and-batten walls.
