Significance: The Long-Waterman House is one of the grandest of the great Bankers' Hill mansions constructed in the boom period of 1880's. A major example of the American "Queen Anne" style, it is in an excellent state of preservation, having remained in a single family from 1897 to the present. Prior to this, the house was the home of California Governor Robert Whitney Waterman. / The Long-Waterman House was designed by San Diego architect D.B. Benson in 1889. It is one of the grandest of the large San Diego mansions constructed in the Banker's Hill area during the boom period of the 1880's. It has been extremely well maintained and has remained in the same family since 1897.
