Sen. Chester Long House
3401 East Second

Built in 1887 as a rural residence by Wichita investor Hardy Solomon, this Victorian style house assumed significance in the fashionable College Hill area in 1911, when former Senator Chester I. Long purchased it.

The large three story frame house was built originally as a farm house but was later modified in 1976 to its present appearance with columns and a porch extending across the front. The ample rooms were often open for parties and the political gatherings of a prominent family active in national politics.
