"The Milner-Schwarz House is locally significant under Criterion C for its architecture as an excellent example of an 1-House with a classic modification, a single-story rear wing built contemporaneously to the main section. The 1-House was a common house type in England that was built in the American colonies by English settlers. Cultural geographer Fred Kniffen categorized it as the ""1-House"" with the ""I"" referring to the ""I"" states such as Iowa, Illinois, and Indiana. The house was a fitting design when considering Joseph and Ann Milner's English origin, business and construction experience and past affluent lifestyle."
