Lindsay is a community of 20,354 people on the Scugog River in the Kawartha Lakes region of south-eastern Ontario, Canada. It is approximately 43km west of Peterborough. It is the seat of the City of Kawartha Lakes, and the hub for business and commerce in the region.Lindsay Transit provides bus service to the community and surrounding area.Lindsay has a sister city, Nayoro, Japan, and a small Japanese culture exhibit is in the main entrance to the library as well as at the Olde Gaol Museum. The sister city serves as a cultural experience for local students as every two years students are chosen to travel to Japan for free.HistoryThe Township of Ops was surveyed in 1825 by Colonel Duncan McDonell, and Lots 20 and 21 in the 5th Concession were reserved for a town site. The same year settlers began to come to the region, and by 1827, the Purdy's, an American family, built a dam on the Scugog River at the site of present-day Lindsay. The following year they built a sawmill, and in 1830, a grist mill was constructed.A small village grew up around the mills, and it was known as Purdy's Mills. In 1834, surveyor John Huston plotted the designated town site into streets and lots. During the survey, one of Huston's assistants, Mr. Lindsay, was accidentally shot in the leg and died of an infection. He was buried on the riverbank and his name and death were recorded on the surveyor's plan. The name Lindsay remained as the name of the town by government approval. Lindsay grew steadily and developed into a lumbering and farming centre.
