This group of 19th-century houses and farm buildings is significant as an architectural and social document. The main brick residence has Palladian architectural features popularized by Thomas Jefferson, whose advice was sought on the building plans. Two other main 19th-century buildings in the district are rare examples of Jacobean Revival style. -- National Historic Landmark statement of significance, November 11, 1971
