Loula Long Combs – The Mistress of Longview Farm
Known for her generosity of spirit and exceptional style, Loula Long Combs was a horsewoman extraordinaire and Queen of the American Royal. As mistress of Longview Farm in Lee’s Summit, Missouri, she was both elegant and down-to-earth. Daughter of lumber baron and philanthropist R. A. Long, she lived in stately Corinthian Hall in Northeast Kansas City.
Lovingly referred to as Kansas City’s Ellie May Clampett, she was an early champion of animal welfare, owning as many as 18 dogs at a time – not to mention Mary the pig, Jocko the monkey, and skunks Gardenia and Magnolia. Learn about this memorable and colorful character in local history.
