In 1873, Tom Plane Ranch was established along the Hamilton-Pioche stage line. Eventually Mormon settlers arrived; among the first were John L. Whipple and Anthony H. Lund (for whom the community would be named). In 1881, a flour mill was built, and in 1898 a township was platted and post office opened. Soon Lund had a school and stores, but it wasn't until 1903 that a log church was built. In the early part of the twentieth century, more substantial buildings were built including schools and a more permanent church. Ever since, Lund has remained a small ranching hamlet with a population of just a few hundred. A few of the original buildings and homes still stand.
