Albert Held

As one of the largest historic landmark residences in Spokane, the brick-and-stucco Leo and Katie Long House is a high-style example of the Queen Anne tradition with French Eclectic and Tudor Revival-style influence.  The two-and-one-half-story home commands a panoramic view of north Spokane from a steep hillside site in the Second Railroad Addition on the South Hill.  The home is characterized by typical Queen Anne-style features including an irregular footprint, an irregular steeply pitched hip roof, multiple dormers and bays, and two full-height towers.  The Long House retains a high degree of architectural integrity in original location, design, materials, workmanship, and association as a single-family residence erected at the dawn of the twentieth century in Spokane.
