Here is a history page for Lindsay.

Julius Orton came to the west from Ohio and then Missouri. He served in the army in 1846 coming to the Placerville area as a guard for a pack train. When he didn't find gold there, he moved to the Soquel area. Finally, he and his family walked over 200 miles to homestead some land along the Tule River. Later, he took a second homestead next to the land of the Keeley brothers. He planted the first orange trees in this area on his land which established the area as "Central California's Citrus Center."

The town was laid out by Captain Arthur J. Hutchinson, who came here in 1889. He named it for his wife, Sadie Lindsay Patton Hutchinson.

Lindsay Historical Events

1990 - December
In December 1990, the community was hard-hit by a rare freeze, followed by the loss of several major local employers. As temperatures plummeted for days into the teens and twenties for as long as 15 hours, oranges froze on the trees. The community's greatest industrial asset was destroyed overnight. Fifty-seven percent (57%) of Lindsay's population was out of work.
