KNUTE REINDAHL HOUSE
4009 Monona Drive

A noted violin-maker; Knute Reindahl left Chicago in the early 1900's and established his home and workshop on the shores of Lake Monona next to an Indian Mound which he carefully preserved. The family spent the summers here, living in a tent the first two seasons. A cottage, designed by Mrs. Reindahl, was built in 1903. It had a living room, dining room, kitchen and large summer porch on the first floor with three bedrooms and sleeping porch on the second. Mr. Reindahl's skill as a violin maker was recognized by the Jury of Awards at the Exposition Universalle in Paris, which awarded him a specially-struck medal. Another award, a Diploma of Merit, was presented to him at the World's Columbia Exposition in Chicago. President of the American Academy of Violin Markers in 1928, he is also listed in the "Who's Who in America".
