Golinda, population 559, is situated on the county line between Falls and Mclennan counties. It was originally named for Ignacio Golindo, a priest at Nacogdoches, who received an eleven league grant from Coahuilla and Texas in 1833.

Early settlers were attracted to the area's rich agricultural land which is on high ground and more attractive for habitation than the low bottom land near the Brazos river because of malaria and typhoid fever. Golinda is an agricultural area which today grows primarily corn, milo, wheat and livestock.
