358 Washington St., circa 1872
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. Pictured here are, speculatively: John Long, age 52; wife, Mary, in the upstairs window; youngest child, Eliza, age 6; son, Joseph, age 10.
