The Historic Longview Mansion sits on what was once the Longview Farm, which was the country estate of famous Kansas Citian R.A. Long.  The mansion is now used as an event facility and is home to weddings and corporate events, among other things.  To find out more about the history of the Longview Mansion and Farm, please visit the official website here.

The fountain sits out front of the mansion in the middle of a natural amphitheatre-type area.  There is a column in the middle of a round basin and each face of the column has a very ornate decoration with a waterspout.  A jet of water comes out of each face of the column, providing the fountain effect.  The landscaping is very well kept and meticulously shaped.  Wedding ceremonies are held in the fountain area.

If you want to photograph the Longview Mansion fountain or grounds, you need to obtain permission.  This is private property so they do not appreciate people roaming around the grounds without their knowledge, especially when they have an event they are setting up for or in progress.  Also, the fountain does not operate continuously, they only have it running for events.  They have signs at the front gate, which you can find pictures of below, warning you of these facts.  If you are interested in trying to arrange a time to take photographs, use the Longview Mansion website or the phone number listed on the sign at the front gate for contact.

My thanks to Jenny Gale, General Manager and Events Coordinator, for allowing me to visit and take photos.
