The house is named after a local businessman, Lindsay (it is currently unclear of that was his first or last name), who built and presumably lived in it. The River City Housing Collective now runs the house. The collective is a non-profit that offers low cost housing to students and community members. 

The River City Housing Collective always welcomes new members joining in one of their houses. They emphasize having a healthy social environment as well as teaching management, cooking, maintenance, and communication skills.
