(1926-2006) Sophia and Sim Long built their dream home in 1926 only to have it burn down in 1927. They rebuilt it in that same year.
The home’s prominent features included the terrazzo floors, gorgeous interior woodwork throughout, the field stones on the exterior, and the distinctive mint green ceramic roof tiles brought in from Ohio.
There was a large Linden tree that grew in the back yard and a garden that was shaped like a violin and featured boxwoods, wisteria, azaleas and many more beautiful bushes.
Local Dayton resident, Mike Long who grew up in the house was terribly distraught that it could not be saved and was demolished in 2006 to make way for condominiums.
