The Linden Mills were a vital source of the village of Linden’s economic growth. The first mill, located on land granted to Consider Warner, was used to cut lumber. From 1845-1850 Seth Sadler and Samuel W. Warren, local residents, erected both a saw and grist mill. Operating along with the earlier facility, this complex was called the Linden Mills. The grist mill continued to function for over a century until the machinery was dismantled and sold at auction in 1956. The village then purchased the building for municipal offices and a public Library.
Linden was settled in late 1835 by two brothers, Richard and Perry Lamb who provided housing for travelers. The Village was incorporated in 1871 and was named after the Linden tree.
