Long House – Elizabeth

This large two-story house is rectangular in plan and has a glazed green-tiled hipped roof. Walls are red brick over hollow tile. Rectangular bays project from the sides and rear. A full roof-terraced porch and terrace with cast stone balustrade extends across the front. The house was built for Andrew Jackson Long, a prominent Fort Worth cattleman and banker. Long was a native Texan with a life-long interest in cattle. He moved to Fort Worth in 1899. The house remained in the Long family until 1938. The Long House is a contributing resource in the Elizabeth Boulevard Historic District (local and national).
