Restore Oregon: Lindberg House

Peter (Pehr) John Lindberg house, located in the small coastal town of Port Orford,
was built over a four-year period from 1892 to 1896.   The home was designed and constructed in the Queen Anne style by Mr. Lindberg, who was significant to Port Orford after relocating to the village in 1882.  The number of Lindberg-built structures— an important part of Port Orford’s history— is dwindling, making the Lindberg family house with all its decorative elements important to preserve.

I pulled from an old image of what appears to be Pehr Lindberg and his horse,
and placed him in front of the home as it is today.

Restore Oregon has a lovely article on the house.  I
wish I’d had access to these details when I sketched mine — beautiful!

“The artistry shown by Mr. Lindberg in his shingle work is outstanding, incorporating
at least three different shapes into his patterns.  The stunning shingle work is
original to the home, with some maintenance and replacement work having been
done very well to maintain the character of the original detailing.
Extensive use of unpainted Port Orford Cedar allows the raw wood
craftsmanship to become the focal point of the exterior, contributing to its
significance as an example of vernacular Queen Anne architecture.”
