History & History Related Items

The area was first settled in 1850 by Mormon pioneers, Lindon was initially known as Stringtown because all the homes were built along one road. That road later became US Highway 89. Next door was Grove Fort, later to become Pleasant Grove. By 1901, the area was becoming more populated. Mail was dropped off at an old linden tree in the area. Local leaders petitioned the government for a formal post office to be named Linden. When the paperwork was returned approved, they found the name was spelled Lindon rather than Linden. The error was never corrected. When Lindon was incorporated on 5 March 1924, it had been separated from Pleasant Grove. The new city’s layout was unique from other valley cities. The land was divided into clusters and subdivisions rather than along stream beds. Water was diverted along the new lines.
