WELCOME TO LIND!

HOME OF THE FAMOUS
COMBINE DEMOLITION DERBY™



(1906 ~ looking west on 1st street)
The photo was taken in 1906 by John F. Moberly, wheat farmer,& was shared by
John's granddaughter, Marlea Sheridan, Keizer, Oregon.
(at one time there were 10 taverns lining this street from the corner (where the bank is located)  down to the Grange.

Located in Adams County and nestled among vast wheat fields, Lind is not without charm or history

Lind was first settled in 1888 by the Neilson Brothers, James & dugal on a relatively barren area along the Northern Pacific Railway's main line. In the fall of 1888, the Neilson Brothers built the first Lind residence & two years later they constructed & stocked a store & resumed postal service. James became the first postmaster. In 1889, the first Lind school opened with 6 students. The town was platted in 1890.
Currently, Lind has approximately 500 residents. The town, located in the middle of the eastern/central flat lands of Eastern Washington, is surrounded by wheat & potato crops, some diversified crops from the Columbia Basin Irrigation project (waters from the mighty Columbia River) & an abundance of sage brush. Lind endures occasional tumble weeds rolling through town, and many dust storms! We are to the west of the famous Palouse Hills & east of the Cascade Mountain range, separating Washington into two very distinct & different land areas. Lind accumulates approximately 10 inches of rain a year, & enjoys four very distinct seasons.
