Life in Lindon didn't always include sidewalks, street lights, or paved roads.
The Lindon City Historical Commission is an advisory board organized to make recommendations to the City Council concerning their various assignments, including educating the public concerning the historic preservation and cultural heritage of Lindon, and continuing longstanding community traditions, such as the annual Christmas Tree Lighting. The Commission also surveys historical locations in the City of Lindon and determines what, if any, funds are available to restore and maintain the sites. The Commission is made up of several Lindon residents that are appointed by the Mayor and City Council to serve two-year terms on the Commission. Current members include Lyle Lamoreaux (Chair), Connie Lamoreaux, Ted Lott, Erlene Lott, Rich Doxey, and Maxine Smith.
The Historical Commission typically meets on the second Thursday of each odd numbered month (Jan., March, May, July, Sept., Nov). The meeting is open to the public and is held at 6:00pm in the Historic Museum room in the Lindon Community Center, 25 N. Main Street, Lindon. For information on Commission projects or events, contact the City at 801-785-7687.
A brochure identifying 18 historical sites in Lindon is available at the Community Development Department. It was developed with assistance and funding from the Lindon Historical Preservation Committee and the Utah Division of State History. The brochure is meant to be a self-guided tour and identifies many of the existing historical markers already in town. Click here for a pdf of the brochure. Each site has a brief description, the address and a photo of the building or site. It is hoped that this historical guide will help to remind us of the pioneers who settled this area and their dedication in making Lindon a thriving, beautiful place to live. Some of the buildings in the guide are no longer standing; however, visiting these sites may allow us to visualize the places of residence, work and worship of our honored Lindon settlers. For a copy of the brochure, or further written information on the history of Lindon, please contact the Lindon City Center at 100 N. State Street.
