It is significant under Criterion C in the area of architecture as a good example of a Late 19th and Early 20th Century Foursquare main farmhouse with a Pioneer Log Homestead Cabin, and other farm buildings being of a type, period or method of construction consistent with early farms and the evolution of the farm creating the need for additional buildings and structures.
