Description
The 1890 Shute-Meierjurgen Farmstead is located in the heart of the original Edward and Brazilla Constable “Five Oaks” donation land claim (DLC), approximately 3.3 miles northeast of downtown Hillsboro. The Shute-Meierjurgen Farmstead is locally significant under Criterion C in the area of Architecture as an excellent and increasingly rare example of a late 19th-early 20th century farmstead within the immediate vicinity of the City of Hillsboro (within the current Urban Growth Boundary) which has maintained good integrity of setting, location, design, association, materials, workmanship and feeling. The house, reflecting the typical cross-wing form of the late-nineteenth century farmhouse combined with Classical and Queen Anne stylistic ornamentation popular at the time, indicates the somewhat elevated economic status of the Shutes, mostly due to the diversified income developed by Shute. The barn is a largely intact, fine example of an early twentieth century hay and livestock barn, and the garage is an almost completely intact, purpose-built pre-1920 automobile storage building. Together, the farm buildings well represent the last identified collection of primary farm buildings of a late-nineteenth and early twentieth century farmstead within the UGB around Hillsboro, and is increasingly rare in the larger vicinity around the city. The period of significance is 1890-1919, beginning with the year of construction of the original portion of the house and ending with the construction of the garage, the last building of the farmstead.
