The Einar and Alice Borton House was identified by the Eastside Hill and Westside Neighborhoods Intensive Survey in 2010 as being potentially eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) for its local significance under National Register (NR) Criterion C (Architecture). Research to assess the house's potential for eligibility was undertaken using the NR significance area of Architecture, a theme that is also identified in the State of Wisconsin's Cultural Resource Management Plan (CRMP). This research centered on evaluating the house by utilizing the Contemporary section of the Architectural Styles study unit of the CRMP.9 The results of this research are detailed below and demonstrate that the steel-clad Borton house is locally significant under NR Criterion C for being a very fine, highly intact example of a Westchester Deluxe model prefabricated two-bedroom single family dwelling manufactured by the Lustron Corporation.
