Walter and Fannie Kibbee purchased 15 acres in the northwest quarter of Section 5, Township 13, Range 20 in Douglas County in December 1908. The property at 1500 Haskell Avenue quickly increased in value, indicating construction of the Kibbee house, barns and outbuildings. The farm was originally located in rural Douglas County, but the area was on the verge of development due to its proximity to Lawrence. The farmstead with its five remaining acres is nominated to the National Register of Historic Places under Criterion A for its association with local agricultural history and under Criterion C for its architecture. It is nominated as part of the multiple property submission, Historic Agriculture-Related Resources of Kansas as an example of a Farmstead property type. All six buildings of the Kibbee farmstead are considered associated historic agriculture-related structures as outlined in the MPDF.
