Significance: The Hudson-Cippa-Wolf Ranch was one of the last surviving examples of a 19th-century agricultural complex in Sacramento County, reflecting both the establishment of permanent ranches in the 1860s and the development of dairy farming and agriculture in the period 1860 to 1943. It was a rare example of a group of agricultural buildings, including a bunkhouse and an extremely rare granary. Although its buildings were in poor condition, the Hudson-Cippa-Wolf Ranch retained a large degree of integrity as a complex at the time they were recorded.
