Logger Sculpture on Gull River

The large sculpture of a logger across the bridge downtown next to the Gull River is a reminder of Minden’s origins. Settlers were first drawn to the region (via the Bobcaygeon Road, an original colonization road), because of its timber resources. The town lies on the banks of the Gull River and during the 19th and 20th centuries, loggers used the river to move timber to sawmills downstream.

Minden Shoe Tree

The urban legend tells us this tree holds hundreds, perhaps thousands of pairs of shoes, hung, nailed and placed with care through its massive branches.

It’s a sight to behold and the location, until now, has been a mystery! This particular tree is located about a 9-minute drive outside of Minden on South Lake Road. The closest street address is 2354 South Lake Road, Minden.
