Composed of 69 contributing properties, the Lake Linden Historic District is an area in the village of Lake Linden in the county of Houghton, Michigan. The locale started as a French Canadian community established in the late half of the 1800s.

Most of the buildings in the area are from the late 1800s, when the local government established a fire code to prevent the mining companies from pulling out of the area, after the massive fire of 1887. The locals made their buildings more fire resistant, making them more durable, in turn, as well. Most of the structures were also made out of brick or stone, giving them a rather classic feel.

Driving through the Lake Linden Historic District can be quite a pleasurable experience. Since the buildings are not exactly very tall, it gives the area a more open atmosphere.
