Statement of Significance (as of designation - November 11, 1971):
From 1927 until his death, this rustic stone-and-log structure was the summer home of author Sherwood Anderson (1876-1941), who is generally credited with reintroducing subjectivity into American literature through his frankly self-revealing works.

In 2004, the structure is generally in good condition, however, some deterioration is present in the log portion of the structure. The integrity of the structure is not threatened at this time.

Recommendation/Change since last report:
Recommended actions include a condition assessment report and repair of the damage and deterioration.
