MINDEN, La. (KSLA) - A popular HGTV franchise is making a stop right here in the ArkLaTex. “Home Town Kickstart” will feature Minden along with five other small cities and towns in the U.S.

KSLA News 12 sat down with Sara McDaniel and Rachel Miller. The two went from neighbors to friends, and now they’re putting Minden on the map.

“I don’t think we ever dreamed this big,” Miller said. “So this has been surreal for both of us.”

“Home Town” personalities Erin and Ben Napier will lead three projects in each town: Refresh the home of a local hero, give a small business a beautiful upgrade and reinvigorate a public space to enhance the residents’ quality of life and engender community pride.

Miller is a Minden native, while McDaniel grew up not far away in Springhill.

“Just being here in this quaint, cozy community with walkable amenities, I mean, it is home,” McDaniel said. “We want other people to come here and love this town as much as we do.”
