Present Function

Linden is a relay station, linking Aldie, VA and Middletown, VA.

Linden was sold by AT&T to American Tower Corporation, which offers space on the tower for cellular and other wireless communications services. American Tower has created on online site brochure which includes photos of the facility.


From at least January 1970 through December 1988, Linden served as a relay station Omps (Whitacre, VA) and Warrenton 2, VA. The change in destinations was probably associated with AT&T's acquisition of the Middletown, VA facility from Western Union in 1991.
