Statement of Significance (as of designation - August 6, 1998):
The Jesus Trevino-Blas Uribe Rancho is an exceptional survivor of vernacular Mexican architectural and ranching traditions on the northern, or American, side of the Rio Grande. Evolving from a simple one-room stone shelter, built ca. 1830 by Jesus Trevino, who maintained his principal residence in Mexico, the complex grew in four, possibly five, building campaigns, into a large ranch headquarters forming an enclosed quadrangle. Although the last addition dates from 1871, traditional building patterns were maintained, illustrating the persistence of Hispanic culture along the borderlands long after Texas had become part of the United States. Largely in original condition, the complex vividly portrays the Mexican/Texan frontier experience.

Condition:
Overall, the NHL is in good condition.

There have been no changes since the last reporting period.

Recommendation/Change since last report:
Though the property is not threatened, it does require some routine maintenance and would benefit from a Historic Structures Report and inventory of existing conditions.
