Albert & Louise Ordean Residence

While the original deep red paint on its brick exterior has been painted over in recent years, this house remains as a fine example of a Georgian Colonial Revival style. Albert Ordean was a prominent Duluth pioneer: founder of two Duluth banks, organizer of Stone-Ordean-Wells wholesale grocer, and director of the Great Northern Railroad. In 1927 Ordean purchased land from Northland Country Club and gave it to Duluth; the property was home to Ordean Middle School until 2009.
