Lindsay is near a band of national and state parks running north to south in the state along the Nevada border. With Lassen and Tahoe national forests in the north and Sierra National Forest and Sequoia National Park in the south, near Lindsay, residents have plenty of land to explore on the weekends.
Julius Orton was one of the first white settlers in Lindsay in 1880. The area had been home to the Yandanche Indian tribe for hundreds of years, but Orton settled a large tract of land and began planting oranges in the area after walking 200 miles from the ocean in the west.
Although some farmers had already been in the region, Lindsay's population really boomed after the Southern Pacific Railroad came through in 1889.
