Current Status:

Linden has a very rich history, dating back to the mid-19th century. Linden was all owned by a family of farmers named Morgan. It went on that way for twenty years until John Morgan sold a large portion of land to unknown buyers. Over 230 acres (0.93 km2) are still owned by the Morgans. It is the largest land ownership in Linden. Four original Morgans live on the 230 acres (0.93 km2) that make up that homestead.
