Zopher & Catherine DeLong and their children, ca. 1867
In 1867, Glens Falls hardware merchant Zopher DeLong remodeled a modest wood frame home on Glen Street, adding the two story brick façade structure with a mansard roof seen by visitors today. Following Zopher’s death in 1901, his son John took over the home and remodeled it again to reflect his desire for modern tastes and conveniences. Visitors today will discover how home life changed as new technologies and decorating trends came along in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
