Situated at the head of Torch Lake, Lake Linden developed around the lumber mills and the Calumet and Hecla Mining Company's stamping mills and reclamation plant. The stamping mills opened in 1866 to crush and leach out copper ore, and the reclamation plant was built in 1913 to recover copper from sand or tailings accumulated from the earlier stamping mills. This community is predominantly French Canadian.
