Linderud Manor[edit]

Linderud Manor (Linderud gård) was owned by the Catholic Church before the Reformation of 1536, and thereafter by the Crown.[1] It was bought by Peder Griffenfeldt in 1673,[2] then by Mogens Lauritzen in 1679, and belonged to the latter's family for over a century. By the late eighteenth century, the manor was a part of a property which included vast amounts of forest, some timber industrial sites and about 350 farms.[1]

Lauritzen's ancestor Mogens Larsen Monsen passed it down to his son-in-law Haagen Mathiesen[1] in 1802.[3] Later owners include Haaken C. Mathiesen from 1875 to 1891,[4] Christian Pierre Mathiesen from 1893 to 1940 and Jørgen Mathiesen from 1940.[5] Jørgen Mathiesen set up the Linderud Foundation in 1954, which now owns the main building of the manor as well as the surrounding park.[1] Since 1960 parts of the park are preserved due to botanical value.[6]

Neighborhood[edit]

The farmland surrounding Linderud manor was largely built in the 1950s and 1960s, eventually forming an urban neighborhood.[2] A primary and a secondary school were constructed between 1964 and 1968,[7][8] although a school had existed in conjunction with the farming community between 1860 and 1900.[9] The Norwegian Military Academy is located at Linderud as well.[10] The shopping mall Linderud senter was opened in 1968, and enlarged in 1992[9] and 2009.[11] Since 1966 the neighborhood is served by Linderud station of the Oslo T-bane network.[9]

Sports[edit]

The ski jumping hill Linderudkollen share name with the area. It actually consists of four hills, constructed in 1931, 1965 and 1995, the largest with a calculation point of seventy metres.[12] In 2009 the quarterpipe competition Arctic Challenge was staged there.[13] The local multi-sports team is Linderud IL, founded on 13 December 1967, which has sections for association football, team handball, floor hockey and skiing.[14]
