Corinthian Hall is a magnificent house. Unfortunately, during the forties some anxious Jr Leaguers ripped the house to shredds to turn it into a museum. Sadly, only three areas remain intact. The French Salon, the Library and the magnificent grand entryway. Upstairs you can see where walls were ripped out. The story is a little sad too. When Mr. Long became wealthy and built the house, Mrs. Long had to assume the duty of a grand Hostess. She said often she preferred the days when she worked by her husbands side. Also in those days you couldn't become "chummy" with the help. So in a huge home with 25 servants, Mrs. Long was all alone.
