HistoryTindale Mine was incorporated in 1891, on the west side of North Table Mountain. This was a small coal mining community. Tindale Post Office operated from 1891-1893, at approximately 72nd Avenue and Quaker Street. Electrically operated cars were replacing steam engines and the Denver Lakewood Golden Railroad Company Power Plant used coal from Tindale. After a flood washed out the railroad tracks, in 1896, the railroad failed financially and was sold in 1904 to the Denver and Inter- Mountain Railway Company.
