"The Lewis-Webb Home is significant [for being] associated with the lives and careers of John and Susan Lewis and William Larkin Webb and Mabelle Brown Webb, persons significant to the history of Independence, Missouri. John and Susan Lewis were among the earliest settlers in Jackson County and were responsible for platting Lewis addition to the City of Independence in 1853. William Larkin Webb and Mabel Brown Webb, who were occupants of the house in the early part of the twentieth century, were prominent as a local publisher and poet. The residence is a well-preserved example of a vernacular style of late Greek Revival architecture common to west-central Missouri ca. 1845-1855, often re-interpreted in the 1870's and 1880's by the addition of decorative woodwork and carpentry. The property is significant in the areas of architecture and community planning." - National Register Nomination form
