The Linden House

The historic Linden House was built in 1886 and was the home of David Bachrach and his family for many years.  Mr. Bachrach was a prominent commercial and portrait photographer known for his technical contributions to the art.  Mrs. Bachrach’s niece was Gertrude Stein, who briefly lived in the home in 1892.  The Women’s Housing Coalition has renovated the main house and a detached former studio into five affordable apartments.

The renovation was funded by Healthy Neighborhoods, Inc., with Neighborhood Stabilization Program 2 funds under the federal American Reinvestment and Recovery Act, and by the France-Merrick Foundation.  The house is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.  The architect for the project was Kathleen Lechleiter, AIA; the general contractor was Southway Builders; the developer was Episcopal Housing Corporation.
