In Buenos Aires, Argentina there are many architectonic heritage objects that represent the history of the population of different places with different degree of deterioration and conservation, so their study and survey were necessary to avoid the complete loss of it. During the study of heritage assets in towns, villages, and cities of Buenos Aires that the LEMIT makes more than 20 years ago, numerous architectonic heritage assets were found with different degree of deterioration and conservation. As result of some surveys, important restoration and conservation interventions were done preserving province heritage. Thus, the aim of this paper was the study of the materials deterioration state from the first ranch built by the settlement of the Jewish settlers in 1891, in Algarrobos city, Carlos Casares, Buenos Aires. This ranch was the first houses of Jews when they arrived from Russia. The material analysis here presented allowed to recognize its state of deterioration and conservation through discerning if these materials were from the mentioned age and consequently, providing fundamental information to know part of settlement history formation. On the other hand, its study allowed generating a plan of interventions and conservation in short – and medium- term.
