Tanglewood is locally significant under Criteria C-Architecture as one of the few surviving antebellum houses in Hinds County and as a well-preserved example of the vernacular Greek Revival galleried cottage, an architectural style that was popular in Mississippi prior to the Civil War. Tanglewood was moved from its original location c. 1878, and renovated in 1926, but retains its integrity of materials, workmanship and association.
