Statement of Significance (as of designation - December 29, 1962):
Benjamin Franklin (Frank) Norris has been called "the most stimulating and militant of the early American naturalist writers." His works reflect the individual's loss of identity in modern society. A writer of the American naturalism school, Norris lived here before his death in 1902 at the age of 32. Surrounded by magnifcent redwoods, the cabin is in its original condition.
