Lindbergh is a hamlet in central Alberta, Canada within the County of St. Paul No. 19. It is located approximately 17 kilometres (11 mi) east of Highway 41 and 77 kilometres (48 mi) northwest of Lloydminster. The first settlers of Lindbergh arrived some time in 1906, and by 1911 a ferry, school, and cemetery had been constructed in the area. When the CNR reached nearby Heinsburg in 1927, a post office was moved to Lindbergh from Riverview along with a store. In 1946 oil companies drilling near Lindbergh found salt and began the planning of a new salt plant which was completed in 1948.
