Peter J. Lindberg House listed in the National Register of Historic Places

The Peter J. Lindberg House in Port Orford is among Oregon's latest entries in the National Register of Historic Places.

Designed and constructed by local businessman and community leader Peter J. Lindberg between 1892 and 1896, the Lindberg family home is recognized as a locally unique example of a Queen Anne-style residence. Notable architectural details include decorative unpainted wood shingles laid in complex patterns, distinctive two-story tower, and a prominent bay window. Lindberg was born in Stockholm, Sweden in 1851. After a brief career as a sailor he settled in San Francisco where he learned the building trades before arriving in Port Orford in 1882 with his wife and family. Though lacking formal training, Lindberg constructed many buildings in the community, including the National Register-listed 1898 Patrick and Jane Hughes farm house. The remaining homes built by Lindbergh exhibit fine craftsmanship and embody the key features of the Queen Anne Style, including a complex shape and ornate decoration. His personal home is the best example of his work.

Oregon's State Advisory Committee on Historic Preservation recommended the building's nomination in their October 2014 meeting.  There are now 45 historic properties in Curry County that are now listed in the National Register, which is maintained by the National Park Service under the authority of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966.
