Biography of Linn Kinne
Oneida County, NY Biographies





One of the well known architects of Utica is Linn Kinne, whose birth occurred in Hartwig Seminary, Otsego county, New York, May 12, 1873, his father being H. E. Kinne, a well known farmer of that section.

Reared on a farm, the boyhood and youth of Linn Kinne were very similar to those of other lads in the rural districts. In the acquirement of his education he attended the common schools of the community, after the completion of which he matriculated at Cornell University, where he fitted himself for the profession he is now following, being graduated with the class of 1897. For a time after leaving college he worked in the offices of various architects in order to obtain a more practical understanding of the business. Later he opened an office in Herkimer, New York, which he maintained for seven years, during which time he designed and executed plans for a number of large public buildings in addition to a good many residences. Five years ago he came to Utica where he established an office, and during the period of his residence here has succeeded in building up a profitable business. His specialty has always been residences and apartment buildings. He has excellent ideas about the arrangement of a house to meet both artistic and practical requirements, and can adapt his conception of the former to meet the needs of the limited purse without sacrificing harmony to utility. His work is becoming known quite extensively throughout this section and he has almost as many patrons from without as within the city.

In 1898 Mr. Kinne was united in marriage to Miss Ostrander a native of Herkimer county, New York. Fraternally he is identified with the Masonic order, while his political support is given to the republican party. Mr. Kinne is making very good progress in his profession and is becoming recognized as one of its able representatives in this vicinity.
