The George Hansen House is eligible for the National Register under Criterion A, at the local level of significance. The property meets the requirements of Criteria Consideration B for Moved Prope1ties as the only surviving building fiom Anaheim's early settlement period. The property is significant in the area of Exploration/Settlement and illustrates the earliest type of buildings that were present in the 1, 165-acre agricultural colony of Anaheim when it was founded in the mid-19th century. The residence was constructed in late 1857 or early 1858, shortly after the founding of Colony, by the surveyor who laid out the Colony in advance of the arrival of the settlers and investors. Being not only the earliest surviving but apparently the first house built in the Colony, the Hansen House is one of the most significant landmarks of mid-19th century Orange County.
