In 1874 a private platform named ‘Linden’ was opened to serve nearby Linden house. It became public in 1882. Linden’s earlier names were ’17 Mile Hollow (referring to its distance from Emu Plains), ‘Linden Tank’ and ‘Henderson’s Platform’. Notable historical features of Linden are Caley’s Repulse, Kings Cave, Donohoe’s Headstone, the remnants of Cox’s road and Linden observatory.
Bull’s Camp, named after Lt. John Bull, is situated between Linden and Woodford. At the rear of Bull’s Camp are two cells cut out of rock (folklore has it that these were places of punishment) and a grooved stone, known as the “Flogging Stone”.
