Historic Fogelbo

Nestled in the mature trees along Oleson Road is an unassuming placed called Fogelbo in Swedish, the term means "bird nest", and is derived from the Fogelquist family name. A sweeping drive takes you to a finely crafted log home, rustic but not without charm and clearly loved.

The log structure was built between 1938 and 1940. A Swedish couple, Mr. and Mrs. Oscar Olson, had the home built by Henry Steiner, one of the chief carpenters of the historic Timberline Lodge on Mt. Hood.
