Lindbergh is a former coal mining community located south of Bessie Junction and east of Porter, along Village Creek in northwestern Jefferson County.

The mines there, also called the Lindbergh Truck Mines or Lindbergh No. 1 - No. 6 Mines, were operated at different times by the Brookside-Pratt Mining Company, the Carr Coal Company, Colonial Coal & Coke Company, Davidson Coal Company, Dixie Pratt Coal Co., U.S. Pipe, and the Tennessee Coal, Iron & Railroad Company. A shaft from Lindbergh, created under U.S. Pipe's tenure, intercepted the Bessie Mine.

The coal seam on the south side of Village Creek from the former shaft openings is currently being strip-mined by the Native American Coal Company.
