Significance: The farmstead chronicles the development of 160 acres in Las Gallinas (Spanish for wild turkey) by s Silesian immigrant family. Members of the first organized group of Polish immigrants to America who founded and settled Panna Maria, Texas, in 1854, the Koruses left twelve years later to operate and own this farmstead. It has been owned and occupied by direct descendants of the Koruses for nearly 130 years. Its four primary structures, coupled with the numerous outbuildings, provide a clear record of the changing needs, attitudes and social position of a Polish immigrant family in Texas. Moreover, the dogtrot-style house provides a rare example of vertical log construction. It and the other three primary structures retain a fairly high degree of architectural integrity.
