History

In 1887 the Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railroad constructed a line from Gainesville to Henrietta that passed through the site that would become Lindsay. The story of its founding closely resembles that of its neighbors along the railway such as Muenster. In 1891, Anton and August Flusche arranged for transfer of 9,300 acres (38 km2) along the railway in order to found a new town, which they named after a local judge. They attracted several German Catholic settlers in the following years.

The date of Lindsay's founding is officially recognized as March 25, 1892, when the first mass was held; however, Lindsay was not formally incorporated until 1959.

The town of Lindsay has maintained some German traditions, including an annual Oktoberfest. As is typical in the region, the main industries are farming, principally dairy farming, and oil production.
