The first house in Badenoch was built in 1834, which was the home of Donald Martin, John Kennedy, and Mr. and Mrs. McBain. John Linderman, the first settler in Badenoch, bought 600 acres of land - lots 32, 33, 34, 35, and 36, west halves (front) of Concession 10, and 34. Along the creeks behind these properties, Linderman built saw mills which were known around the area as "Linderman's Saw Mills". One of the reasons Linderman's saw mills were so well-known was because they were the first of their kind in this part of the country. Linderman went on to operate these mills until he died in 1853.
