The Locust Grove/R.E. Luttrell Farmstead is locally significant under Criterion A for Agriculture as an excellent illustrative example of a rural Virginia Piedmont farmstead that has managed to remain intact over time as it transitioned from subsistence farming in the nineteenth century, to horse farming in the 1920s, and then later back to animal husbandry, and finally, horse farming in the present day. The farmstead is also eligible under Criterion C in Architecture as an evolved early nineteenth-century farmstead that has retained integrity for nearly two centuries. The period of significance begins ca. 1815 with the construction date of the house and ends in ca. 1940, representing the time in which construction and alteration of contributing farmstead resources were completed, and the era in which the farmstead contributed the most to the farming industry and local history of the area.
