Experience life in the heart of Valdese from one of its most historic homes! A short walk to Valdese Public Library, Valdese Recreation/Pool, and downtown shops and restaurants from this spacious 4 bedroom, 3 bath home with modern updates and conveniences. Known as the "John Long House" and former residence of Valdese' first mayor, it is reportedly the home at which the original group of Waldensian immigrants spent their first night upon arriving in 1893 from northern Italy. The Waldenses called it the "Brick House" because it had brick chimneys. They were familiar only with rock for such purposes. This amazing home has been modified over the years and boasts updated electrical and HVAC while retaining its old world character and sense of history. Construction date is approximate. Burke County Tax records show date of construction as 1925, but historic records place the original house in existence at 1893.
