History

The town was laid out by Captain J. R. Tucker, March 19, 1883 and named Minden. But only a year later the name was changed to Mindenmines (spelled Minden Mines from 1884 to 1895) because the mail got mixed up with that of Mendon, Missouri. The suffix was added because the chief occupation of the local inhabitants was coal mining.
