Built for the same family that commissioned the Lindholm Gas Station (also known as the Broadacre City Gas Station) in Cloquet, the R.W. Lindholm residence is also known as Mäntylä (Finnish for "house among the pines). The L-shaped layout has an enclosed carport, forming a T shape. The house is situated to maximize the setting sun in the living and sleeping quarters, and to have the living quarters shaded at noon during the summer. The Lindholms hired an Iowan cabinetmaker to do the interior work to save money.

The home was completed in 1952, and has been in the family since its construction. The Lindholm residence is currently for sale

lindholm service station

from frank lloyd wright posted in art and design by corporate_sunshine

The R.W. Lindholm Service Station (currently known as Best Service) in Cloquet, MN was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. The concept of the design was intended to fit into Wright's larger Broadacre City project, a Utopian vision of a decentralized American landscape. This gas station remains the only one ever designed by Wright.

Constructed in 1956 (the same year as the Guggenheim Museum), the building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on September 11, 1985. Today, it is on the market for sale.
