Lindale Texas History:
The Lyndale post office opened in 1873 and was renamed Lindale the next year. In 1875, the International-Great Northern Railroad established a station in town. In 1879, the town had 300 residents. By 1884, Lindale had two churches, a school, two general stores, two grocery stores, two drugstores, a hotel, a gristmill and cotton gin, a gunsmith, two churches and a school. By 1892, the town had a canning factory, seven flower mills and 500 residents. By 1900, fruit orchards and truck farming were major industries. Lindale incorporated in 1905. During the Great Depression, the economy benefited from the nearby presence of a Civilian Conservation Corp camp, and farmers in the area participated in the Duck Creek Project, searching for ways to prevent soil erosion. The town has continued to grow due to its proximity to Tyler. Football player Earl Campbell is from Lindale. Country singer Miranda Lambert was born in Longview but grew up in Lindale.
