Statement of Significance (as of designation - October 12, 1994):
From 1930 to 1937, this little-altered 2 1/2-story frame-and-granite dwelling was the home of Joseph Taylor Robinson (1872-1937), Senate Majority Leader during the early part of the New Deal. Robinson's ability to keep the "Senate's nose to the grindstone" played a major role in the achievements of Franklin D. Roosevelt's first "100 Days" in office, when such epochal laws as the Emergency Banking, Civilian Conservation Corps, Federal Emergency Relief, Agricultural Adjustment, Tennessee Valley Authority, Home Owners' Loan, and National Industrial Recovery Acts were passed.
