Lindsay history:

In 1887 Lindsay was named for Judge J.M. Lindsay. At the time it had just become a switching station for the Gainesville, Henrietta and Western Railroad. Later, in 1891, Anton and August Flusche came to town desiring to promote it as a German-Catholic Colony. They began by purchasing 9,300 acres along the railroad. The town was platted in 1891 and by Fall, the first residents arrived. The first Mass was held on 25 March 1892. The is the date used as the birth of the community. A frame church was built soon afterward that was replaced by a brick building in 1903. A tornado blew through in 1917 and destroyed the church building. The replacement was completed in 1919.

Lindsay was incorporated in 1959.
