Nestled in the mature trees along Oleson Road is an unassuming place called Fogelbo.
In Swedish, Fogelbo means “bird nest” and is derived from the Fogelquist family name, which means “bird on a branch.”
This historic home and two acres were deeded to Nordic Northwest in 2014 by Sir Ross Fogelquist. The home houses one of the largest private collections of Nordic antiques and folk arts in the United States. Ross Fogelquist has been a passionate collector all of his adult life. He is a member of the Order of the Polar Star and was knighted by the King of Sweden. Thousands of people have been hosted and charmed by this unique and fascinating estate through the last sixty-four years.
Fogelbo was recognized on the National Register of Historic Places by The Department of the Interior's National Park Service on July 21, 2020.
