Lindside Silt Loamsoil_sml.jpg (18604 bytes)

The Linside series consists of deep, moderately well drained soils of the first bottoms. These soils are of moderate extent in the county; they are widely scattered along rivers and small creeks. Those soils along the creeks formed in sediment that washed mostly from soils of limestone origin, and those along the Ohio River formed in mixed sediment that washed from the upper part of the Ohio River basin.
