221. Long-Harris House (FY 1681)
622 Jersey Avenue
Contributing, 1923

This two-story weatherboarded house is a straightforward example of the Colonial Revival style. It has a gable roof with cornice returns, a three-bay facade with eight-over-eight and six-over-six sash windows, and a small Classical entrance porch with Tuscan columns and a full, pedimented entablature. A small one-story wing is on the north side of the house. Like many of the houses in the West End, the Long-Harris House has a granite retaining wall and front walk steps.


Floyd L. Long, a travel auditor for Southern Railway, purchased the property in 1923 and built the house as his residence immediately thereafter. He sold it in 1930. In 1944 Dock L. and Mabel C. Harris bought the house, and it remains their residence. (TR, CD, SH)
