  • Christiansburg Waterwheel
    Linden’s industrial heritage comes alive in the bright red Christianburg Waterwheel, established in 1855. This was part of a hydro-powered sawmill to increase logging efficiency, using water from Katabulli Creek. Much of the processed wood used to make its way to Georgetown for constructing buildings. Chances are that a church and other heritage sites that you might have visited, would have been built from Linden wood.
