About R.A. Long Building

Historic Architecture, Architecture, Interesting Places, Other Buildings And Structures

In 1906, R.A. Long's Long-Bell Lumber Company had outgrown the office space in the Keith & Perry Building. Expanding operations and the need for a larger headquarters resulted in the construction of the R.A. Long Building, completed in 1907. This was the first all-steel framed building in Kansas City, Missouri with 16 stories and over 600 offices. Long's office was located on the 8th floor.

It was the first offices of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City from 1914 to 1921 when it moved across the street to the newly constructed 925 Grand.

The renamed City National Bank & Trust Company opened their headquarters on the first floor in 1934. In 1947 the bank purchased the building.
