It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) in 2002.[1]

According to its NRHP nomination, the building is an '"impressive Classical Revival style structure" and "the style was in keeping with early twentieth-century social sentiment that educational facilities generally reflect a nobility of purpose. The ninety-two-year-old building exhibits exceptional integrity of materials and design."[2]
