Description 

Building is architecturally significant as a particularly grand local example of a Beaux-Arts residence. Its original owner, R.A. Long, symbolized the late-19th century ideal of coming from a poor background and rising to wealth and prestige. Long also voiced early view on forest conservation. -- Historic American Buildings Survey
