In 1917, when a petition was sent to the United States Post Office Department for a post office at this locale, it was approved with the name "Linslaw". Locals could not explain the source of the name, but the author of Oregon Geographic Names has a theory that the name was supposed to be "Siuslaw", and the handwriting on the petition was unclear and misread as "Linslaw". Linslaw post office was closed in 1957. The Coos Bay Line of the Southern Pacific Railroad had a station here. Today this line is owned by the Central Oregon and Pacific Railroad.
