Lindale is a city located in Smith County in Texas. As of the 2010 census, the town’s population was 4,818. The town’s area used to be inhabited by the Caddo Indians who were forced out of the area when the Republic of Texas was founded in 1836. Richard B. Hubbard convinced railroad officials to build tracks between Mineola and Tyler. Richard’s brother-in-law, Elijah Lindsey took the advantage of this and established a general store in 1871. Lindale started then, and the mayor was Lindsey. It is talked about why the city’s name is Lindale, but the main reason was after adding the suffix dale it became Lindseydale and was shortened to Lindale after the post office was established in 1874.
