The Gravel Switch Historic District meets National Register Criterion A for its associations with events that have made contributions to broad patterns of local history. The district's significance is evaluated within the context developed within a Multiple Property Submission, --Crossroad Communities in Washington and Marion Counties, Kentucky , 1865-1961.-- This nomination will look at the Planning and Development decisions, as they were enacted in residential and commercial constructions, which resulted in a crossroads community. This building activity helps illustrate the characteristics of crossroads communities in Marion County, differentiating the village as a distinct town form from the county seat town of Lebanon, and the county's river towns, such as Raywick.
