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.
