Significance: The Reuben J. Anderson Farm is an intact farmstead built by a typical independent Piedmont farmer who farmed between 50 and 200 acres after about 1920. Architecturally, the buildings on the farmstead are eclectic variants of traditional southern farm buildings. Agriculturally, they serve as an illustration of the various aspects of traditional Piedmont agriculture, including food storage and preparation, land cultivation, and livestock raising.
