Lindbeck, 1417 Orchard Heights Road NW, (D)

Very little past ownership information of this 1870 house is available until further research. The previous owners were the Bouffleur family, prominent growers at this location as long ago as the 1930s. In 1967, John Lindbeck retired from the US Navy and returned to his hometown to purchase this property. With his wife Carolyn, they continued the sale of fruit from this 36 acre orchard. They sold the property in 2007 for a
development of a retirement community. Perhaps the 1870 historic house will be saved, but it is uncertain.
