Longview Farm

Visit the Longview Farm and Mansion for a bit of a blast from the past. One of Lee’s Summit’s early residents, R. A. Long, built the Longview Mansion along with 50 other farm structures between 1913 and 1914. These included a race track, barns, housing, a church, and a police and fire department. The mansion, however, was the jewel of the property with over 22,000 square feet and 48 rooms. Today, this mansion is on the National Register of Historic Places and is a popular venue for formal weddings and other celebratory events.
