Our Company originated outside of Albany, NY in 1945. As a returning veteran, Richard
Long Sr. drew on his wartime experience and constructed log cabins in the Adirondack
Mountains of New York, frequently these homes were furnished with his handcrafted
furniture. As his reputation for quality and service grew, it became necessary to
expand and meet the increased demand. The current office Slingerlands was then expanded
to become a building supply center. Everything needed to build a complete home including
outdoor furniture and fencing.
During the 1960's and 1970's the demand for fencing, furniture and arbors increased
allowing Long Lumber to expand not only locally but nationally, our products have
seen all of the fifty states! With the new costumer demand Long Lumber found itself
ever expanding, in the 1980’s an indoor showroom was added to demonstrate fencing,
furniture and arbors.
Still located at our original office from 1945, Long Lumber has remained a family
brand, now on its third generations of Longs. Long Lumber continues to manufacture
cedar goods with the same quality production that made it so popular in 1945. We
are proud of our quality products and know they will bring you years of enjoyment!
During the mid 1950's, there was a great demand from private parks and campgrounds
for quality outdoor furniture, thus the furniture shop was expanded and casual furniture
and picnic tables became introduced as catalog products. Long Lumber has been with
the New York State Park System since it began, furnishing tables at the very first
park to open, Bear Mountain State Park. Since then Long Lumber furnished the tables,
benches, chairs and a host of other supplies for the Park System.
