Significance: The Antonio Sala Barn and Storage Shed are historically significant in the area of agriculture. The property is eligible for listing on the National Register under criterion A, for its lengthy association with the 19th and early 20th century agricultural development of Washoe Valley. ... The property's period of significance is from 1859 through 1940. That period includes the Comstock Mining Era which precipitated the early agricultural development of the Washoe Valley, including the initial ranching activities on the Lightning "W" Ranch. The period extends through 1940 which is the span of time that the ranch actively contributed to local commercial agriculture, particularly the dairy industry. The storage shed retains sufficient integrity of design, materials, and workmanship to convey its association with local agricultural history and early twentieth century ranch architecture.
