Statement of Significance (as of designation - February 4, 1985):
Working here from 1906 to 1917, the future President developed abilities that served him throughout his career, such as the knowledge of farming that shaped his Federal farm programs and enhanced his appeal to farmers in the close-fought election of 1948.

Condition:
There are no threats to the NHL at this time

The National Park Service performs regular maintenance and conducts tours of the property in the spring and summer months. The setting of the Farm Home is of concern because its rural character has been diminished by urban encroachment. It is surrounded by apartments and commercial development. NPS is trying to obtain funding to purchase an additional adjacent 5 acres that are for sale and hopes to establish a visitor center for the site.
