Maple Grove Hill mansion will have to be torn down if new country site can’t be found
To the editor:
The house known as Maple Grove Hill, west of Monroe on Highway F-170, needs to be relocated or it will be demolished. Maple Grove Hill, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, was originally built by Joseph Grayson Long and is known as the oldest wood framed house in Jasper County.
It is built on a stone foundation, the beautiful native Iowa red rock. While it is technically known as the J.G. and Regina Long House, it is commonly known as Maple Grove Hill, as the Longs planted many maple trees, which were native to their home state of Pennsylvania.
