The Houses and History of Stillwater Builder Frank Linner & Co.

September 24 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm CDT

Eric B. Linner is the fourth generation of Linner’s working in the construction industry and from Stillwater. His great-grandfather Frank W. Linner, grandfather Lawrence W. Linner and father, David B. Linner were all carpenters/contractors. Eric is a retired architect focusing on institutional buildings including schools and government buildings. His love for genealogy started 50 years ago, when his grandmother peaked his interest in family history which inspired him to research his great-grandfather’s construction history.

The presentation will focus on the career of Frank W. Linner who immigrated to Stillwater in 1879 from Linneryd, Kronobergs, Sweden. His construction company, Frank Linner & Company, built many fine homes in Stillwater from its incorporation in 1897 until his death in 1933.
