|The Wientjes Barn and Ranch Yard with its adjoining system of chutes, corrals, branding/vaccination area, calf shed, and well are eligible under Criterion C for Architecture. The barn is a good example of a multi-level barn with gambrel roof and is a locally significant type in Campbell County. The adjoining system of chutes, corrals, vaccination/branding area, feeding troughs, and calf barn add to the significance and increase the understanding of the use of the barn and architectural designs/changes associated with the barn. Like most working ranch yards, the resource contains a mix of historic and modern materials, such as the use of metal gates. However, non-historic materials do not destroy the ability of the property to convey the period and methods of construction it represents. Rather, the use of non-historic materials in the yard portion further demonstrates the adaptation and availability of new materials into a working farm operation. According the South Dakota Homesteading and Agricultural Development Context, adaptations of ranch yards should be considered along with barns and outbuildings.
