Statement of Significance (as of designation - December 8, 1976):
From 1917 until his death, this was the home of Joseph Erlanger (1876-1965), graduate of the Johns Hopkins Medical School and one of the leading American physiologists of the first quarter of the 20th century. He shared the 1944 Nobel Prize in medicine and physiology for his discovery of the electrical nature of the human nervous system.

The house continues to deteriorate, its condition has not improved in the past several years. There is concern about the lack of resources available to the owner to properly maintain the landmark.

Little has changed in the past two years. Much-needed repairs have not been made.
