The Dan Branch House is significant under Criterion C for its expression of the Midcentury Modern Style.

As a member of the faculty of the University of Florida, Branch taught modern architectural theory and practiced in Gainesville from 1961 to 1973. The Dan Branch House, built in 1965, exemplifies his high standards of modern architectural design that were specifically adapted to its North Florida setting. This building retains a high degree of physical integrity of location, setting, design, materials and workmanship that reflect its significant historic associations.
