Summary

Significance: The Reclamation District 1000 Rural Historic Landscape District is significant at the state level for the period from 1911 to 1939. The establishment of the District as part of a regional reclamation plan resulted in the social, economic and physical transformation of the region, from the original flood plain to a distinctly different open rural landscape consisting of levees, canals and roads intersecting to form large, blocks of fields. RD 1000 was among the first and largest of the major reclamation districts in the state. These features and spatial patterns that characterized the reclamation landscape during its period of significance are characteristic of the landscape today. The district was determined eligible for the National Register of Historic Places in 1994.
