The community was named after Minden, Germany, the native town of a local coal-mining official.
In 2015 the community was annexed into the city of Oak Hill as part of a deal to acquire and upgrade the failing Arbuckle Public Service District. After a lengthy court battle, the annexation was upheld on November 18, 2016 by the West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals.
