All things considered, this is the best thing that could have happened to Lindholm.

Now I want to know more about the Peter Berndtson houses there, starting (I guess) with the mysterious Balter residence.

Then -- wake me what half the remaining Wright Usonians have been moved to new locations, with their unit masonry painstakingly recreated and their
wooden parts successfully grafted onto same, sitting on new scored slabs with state-of-the-art PEX-tubed gravity heat, and artfully-inserted Thermpane®
glazing.

Hey, it's better than having them fall into ruin, or be flooded repeatedly or sold and ruined or demolished. Maybe Polymath Park could have found a use for
the late Lockridge clinic building.

Lockridge at Polymath...nice idea, but the terrain would say otherwise. Dense woods and steep hills make up most of it. Not the setting for a 5000 SF flat site building. There is an open field, but to place a building in it would spoil a long view from Berndtson’s Blum house, which is key to its charm.

Mmm. Thanks. I had, finally, to inform myself about the history of the park . . .
