Lindsey is an unincorporated community located in the Town of Rock, Wood County, Wisconsin, United States. Lindsey is located at the junction of County Highways V and N 10 miles (16 km) southwest of Marshfield.

History

Lindsey was originally part of the vague region called Nasonville since the brothers Solomon L. and William G. Nason had settled at a site about eleven miles southwest of Marshfield in the Spring of 1855. The Nasons were from Cumberland County, Maine. They settled permanently in what would later be termed Nasonville proper in September 1856, buying land in Section 5, Town 24 N, Range 2 E (Rock Township), and also buying several adjoining sections. Solomon later donated a portion of this land, on which Lindsey would be erected.
