The Dorcheat Historical Association Museum held its fourth "Night for the Museum" for the 2011 series of speakers on Monday, May 9.
Museum director Schelley Brown Francis said the event highlighted the history of the Miller and Inabnett family.
"The evening began with an introduction of the evening by parish historian John Agan followed by guest speaker Mr. Joe Miller Inabnett," she said.
Inabnett told of his rich family history that dates back to the 1820s in the Minden area. Many that were on hand have vivid memories of Inabnett's mother, Mrs. Roy Miller Inabnett.
Mrs. Inabnett was a Minden native for more than 90 years and had many rich memories of a century of change and of life as she knew it growing up in Minden.
"This was an emotion-filled night for many, including Joe Inabnett, as he recounted stories and family history that had been handed down to him by his mother," Francis said.
"I am so glad I was able to attend tonight." said one of the out of town guests who had traveled from Little Rock.
"All of the speakers this year have been great," said another museum patron. "I have learned so much about our area by coming to the museum nights."
The museum is now open free of charge Tuesday through Saturday.
The summer program will begin at the end of the school year with more information to be announced soon.
These events will also be something that anyone interested in history will not want to miss.
