Long Description:
The Zuidema-Idsari House is significant as a locally significant and distinct example of Italiante residential design incorporating elements of Eastlake ornamentation. The house is typical of the type of upper middle-class homes which were built in the Village of Lancaster during the last quarter of the 19th century.

The house was built for John H. Zuidema circa 1876. Zuidema emigrated from Holland in 1849 along with a number of other Dutch businessman who settled in Lancaster with their families and contributed significantly to the comminity. He lived in this house until his death in 1879. The property was then acquired by Tjeerd Idsardi, another of the "Hollanders" who came to Lancaster in the late 1840s.
