History[edit]

Of historical note, Longs became mostly founded and known when the Long family, who still have descendants living in South Carolina and Virginia, began the construction of many public buildings and works including a Baptist church. The family moved into the construction and masonry industries with corporations such as JD Long Masonry and Long Enterprises stretching far along the east coast of the United States.
