Mormon pioneers, already settled into Utah County, moved into what is now known as Lindon when it was known as grazing land and began buildings homes, farms and ranches in 1861.
Originally Lindon was called Stringtown because of the way homes were strung down the main roadway between Orem and Pleasant Grove. The name of Lindon came from an old Linden tree in 1901 and was misspelled as Lindon. The name and spelling stuck. Although development has been organized the city still maintains the theme of “A Little Bit of Country.”
Lindon encompasses 8.4 square miles with a population well over 10,000 people. Median income for a family is more than $62,000. The median price for a home in Lindon is $611,000 with an average price of $642,394, in the fall of 2016 according to the Wasatch Front Multiple Listing Service.
