The Brungardt-Dreiling Farmstead is a rare, intact dairy farmstead owned by two Volga German immigrant families, the Brungardts and the Dreilings, for nearly a century. As the most prominent dairy farm operation in the Victoria area, the Brungardt-Dreiling Farmstead is an outstanding example of what the Volga German immigrants achieved after their initial years of poverty and struggle and their entrepreneurial success in both agriculture and business in the Herzog/Victoria area. The house is significant as an excellent local example of Queen Anne architecture. The barn is a fine example of the gambrel-roof barn style that emerged in the 1920s and 1930s. The other farmstead buildings are significant as they contribute to the whole of the farm operation. The period of significance extends over the ownership of the property by the Brungardt and Dreiling families from 1903 when Andreas Peter Brungardt purchased the property to 1960 when the farmstead acquired its current appearance.
