There was a survey that was conducted in 1834 where John Huston plotted the designated town site into streets and lots. During the survey, Mr. Lindsay who was one of Huston’s assistants was accidentally shot and died of an infection. The surveyor’s plan recorded the name and death of the late Mr. Lindsay leading to the name Lindsay remaining as the town’s name with the government’s approval.

On 19th June 1857 Lindsay was officially incorporated as a town. The merging and dissolving of Lindsay’s town government took place in 2001. The town was merged with Victoria County into City of Kawartha Lakes.
