The Clark Lane National Historic District is locally significant under criteria A and C of the National Register. It is significant as an example of a family settlement pattern that occurred in Farmington and other communities throughout the State of Utah. The Ezra T. Clark family, which settled in Farmington in 1850 adopted a system of communal ownership which was established and later abandoned by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. This system continued in the Clark family even after being abandoned by the church. Not until just before the death of Ezra T. Clark in 1901, when many of his children were in their 40's and 50's, did they have a deed to their own homes. This neighborhood is also significant for its concentration of intact homes of a wide variety of architectural influence dating from 1856 to 1940.
