The property was settled by John and Anna O'Sullivan in 1866 and was developed into a successful family operated cattle and livestock farm. The property has been continuously owned and operated as a family farm by descendants of the O'Sullivans. The farmstead is a cohesive collection of farm and rural residential-related structures that demonstrate development-over-time by reflecting the resources and values of a single family over multiple generations, and by incorporating technological changes into the architectural fabric. The buildings are significant as they convey the feeling and association of a historic Marion Township, Douglas County, Kansas farmstead.
