Significance: The Johnston Ranch is a group of farm ranch buildings, residences and ancillary structures encompassing approximately five acres. There are 18 buildings within the ranch complex, two of which are of individual importance, Workers' Residence No. 2 and a brick silo. Workers' Residence No. 2 embodies the distinctive characteristics of a National Folk style house. 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 is one of the few, small farm houses of its type and age remaining in the area. The clay tile silo is distinctive in its design and construction and is unusual for the Central California region and quite possible unique to the Elk Grove area. Most of the surviving silos in the local area were built in the early years of the 20th century and constructed of concrete rings surrounded by steel bands.
