This farmstead, located in rural Phelps County, is a rare collection of agricultural buildings that reflect farming in this region during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Characterized principally by the production of cash grains such as corn and wheat, farmers here also raised livestock including chickens, hogs, and cattle. As a collection, the farmstead includes several agricultural buildings that are excellent representatives of their type; the chicken house, granary, and large gambrel-roofed barn are particularly noteworthy examples. Additionally, the Brenstrom Farmhouse is a unique and exceptional example of the domestic Craftsman Style as applied to a rural residence in Nebraska.
