Significance: The Neville-Kanode Farmstead Residence has significant historical associations with the early settlement of Republic County during the 1870s and 1880s. The Residence housed the Neville family, whose brick making operation was significant as a typical example of local manufacturing. When the Neville House was constructed in 1885, Republic County was newly settled and prosperous. Although there is no direct confirmation, it appears likely that James L. Neville had a fine brick residence built in a conspicuous location, in part, to advertise his own product and his business success.
