The William Lee and Eudora Courtney Bazoon Farmstead is significant at the state level under Criterion C in the area of architecture as a rare survivor of the log building tradition that once flourished in Louisiana. Its period of significance is its 1905 date of construction. As established by the ""Log Construction in Louisiana Historic Context"", log buildings were once widespread and numerous across the state, but today are an endangered species. The Bazoon house and its accompanying log barn are unusually intact examples of the state's log construction and together with a pole well shed compose a rare, complete farmstead of the Upland South tradition in Louisiana.
