The Lindquist is an architectural gem in Portland. The Lindquist family were prolific builders in NE Portland during the 1920’s and 1930’s. The father, Eric Lindquist, along with his sons Fred, Harold (Hugo), Gus and Norman built many houses in the 1930s. One family member, Fred Lindquist also built a 20-unit apartment building, in 1929, that today is on the National Register of Historic Places. The complex, located at 711 NE Randall, was designed by noted apartment building architect Elmer Feig. The Lindquist Apartments are now condominiums available for homeowners to purchase a small yet rich slice of Portland history.

The Lindquists built homes that are not excessively large, but they were built to last with common features that can be easily recognizable. Other architectural details that are common to Lindquist built homes include: mahogany trim and doors, colorful tile bathrooms, Tudor archways, and entry doors with “speakeasy” windows. All are hallmarks of the English Cottage style that was extremely popular in Portland in the 1920s-1930s. They almost all have ornate leaded glass picture windows. Most Lindquist homes have unique handmade fireplace tiles from the Markoff Mosaic Tile Co.
