Statement of Significance (as of designation - June 19, 1964):
For a half century before his death, this was the home of Luther Burbank (1849-1926), internationally known horticulturalist whose work produced many new plant varieties. Often called the "Plant Wizard", Burbank experimented with thousands of plants, his sole goal the production of more and better varieties of cultivated plants; he introduced over 250 varieties of fruit alone.
