Welcome to Linden



The roots of modern-day Linden are still visible today in the Mill — the site of Linden’s first building. Water power was vital to early pioneers, for where there was water, there was power to clear forests, build homes and settle the frontier. The Shiawassee River played a vital role in all of Linden’s major industries: timber in the 1840s, carriages in the 1850s and beyond, and cement in the early 20th century, thanks to marl-rich wetland soil. Today, the town’s 4,000 residents treasure their history and enjoy many local events and recreational opportunities.
