Spearheaded by the Linden Heritage Foundation and in partnership with Main Street, Chamber of Commerce, Economic Development, and Lions Club, “Let Linden Shine” is a mission and a movement to illuminate the historic 1934 Linden Water Tower with a color kinetic lighting system (unlike anything in Northeast Texas) which we believe would:

  • Unify the city and its citizens around a shared landmark
  • Brand the city in a unique fashion
  • Invite and welcome visitors
  • Encourage new business and growth

This will be a once-in-a lifetime opportunity for you to show your love and support for Linden as well as possibly memorialize or honor a family member or loved one.

The goal is to raise $32,000 by August 29 to contract with Longview Lights (www.longviewlights.com) to light up the Old Linden Water Tower.
