History of Lindsay, Ontario

Lindsay Ontario started out as a dam built on the Scugog River by a family in 1827. From there a sawmill and a gristmill were both built in the location around the dam. It didn't take long for a settlement to grow up around the mill, known as Purdy's Mills. After a substantial amount of people moved into this area a surveyor came in to make a plan for official streets and lots to be constructed. During the survey one of the surveyor's co-workers was shot in the leg and died. The diseased man went by the name of Mr. Lindsay and this name and death were recorded by the surveyor. By government approval the town remained to live and grow with the name not Purdy's Mills, but as we know it today “Lindsay, Ontario”.
