The Cunha Farmstead site consists of thirteen contributing buildings. A fourteenth, the original Umatilla County Jail building, can now be found in Fort Henrietta Park. The Queen Anne style home dates from 1902.
The owner, Joseph Cunha, was a Portuguese immigrant from the Azores, who came to America as a stowaway on a Boston-bound ship. Through hard work and intelligence he built up a ranch and business operation that was one of the largest in the county. He was instrumental in construction of St. Peter's Church and the Echo Bank Building.
