The description on the back is quite lengthy, unusual for a postcard:

THE VILLAGE GREEN – On the Village Green, from left to to right, are the Old Elm Creek Indian Fort and Stockade; People’s Store – its shelves lined with items of a bygone age; the old Land Office, where homesteaders filed their claims; the Fire House, with all types of old fire fighting equipment; U. P. Windmill, moved from Agate, Colo; old Lowell Depot, where homesteaders arrived at the end of the line; Water Tower that supplied water for locomotives; the one-room country school; Sod House; China Shop; and the first church built in Minden in 1884.

This collection of cards dates from the 1960s.
