Significance: The Lincoln Veterans Administration Medical Center is part of the VA's "Architectural Set," which is a thematic group of VA planned and designed hospitals constructed throughout the nation between 1922 and 1949. While planned from prototype floor plans, each "set" building's facade was stylistically adapted to fit in with the local architecture of its host community. The out-standing institutional architecture, in this case Georgian Colonial style, reflects the VA's desire to fit in at Lincoln as well as design a cohesive medical complex with architectural merit. The entire 62.1 acres containing the 1929 buildings make up a historic district which is eligible for the National Register of Historic Places.
