Significance: Worker's Residence No. 2 is significant because it embodies the distinctive characteristics of a National Folk style house. The house retains the features of a massed-plan, side gabled family folk house that was common only in parts of the Northeast prior to construction of the transcontinental railroad in the mid-1800s. After completion of the railroad and availability of lightweight lumber, the popularity and construction of these homes spread throughout the country. The only modification to the building is the change to corrugated metal roofing, and possibly the small, shed-roofed porch and electrical wiring. The house may be one of the few, small farm houses of its type remaining in the Elk Grove area of southern Sacramento County.
