In case you have wondered about all the digging going on in the southern part of Lindley, this proposed project by Empire Pipeline, Inc and National Fuel Gas Supply Corporation labeled  "Tuscarora Lateral Project" is well under way. According to this legal in the Leader , there will be "approximately17.12 miles of natural gas pipeline ,including 16.35 miles of 12 inch diameter pipeline and 0.77 miles of 16-inch pipeline and interconnecting facilities along with the construction  of additional compression at the 'Supply' (National Fuel Gas Supply Corporation)
 existing Tuscarora Compression Station."
On the map, the new line is the largest-dark line extending from Tuscarora through Lindley under I 99 , Steuben County Rt.115 (old Rt.15,) Lindley Road, the Tioga River, County Rt.116 and over the hill across from Steamtown Road to the Cram Cross Road station in Caton where it will connect to an existing pipeline in Jackson Township, Penna.

 According to this more information is available on the FERC website Http://

Since this is such an extensive project involving a large portion of the town, I asked one of the contractors  for more information about the history of the project to add to the Historian files. Will keep you posted.

As we took pictures over the weekend, Dick and I wondered what Colonel Lindsley and his group of 40 settlers from 1790 would think .

So many changes in the history and appearance of Lindley in 225 years.

On Saturday September 19, 2015, a group of Lindley volunteers are planning an afternoon of displays and demonstrations that will remind the community of the changes over the years.  
Watch for more details here.
