Long time residence and business location of Jonathan Dean Long (1819-1889), carpenter and builder, roughly across the street from the library. He was also listed in the town directory as a horticulturist and there is a sign advertising “Plants And Flowers For Sale “ in front of the house. The people pictured here do not seem to match those in Long’s family.
