Amy Long (1876-1960), a.k.a. Mrs. Oscar Fitzalan Long, was one of the East Bay’s most prominent socialites who later became a successful businesswoman in her own right.

The year her husband died she made headlines by purchasing two banks in Willits, this coming on the heals of a number of successful real estate deals. Amy Long got involved in real estate when she led the effort to subdivide the Requa estate on Highland Avenue in Piedmont near their home at 65 Hazel Lane. The Requa house was known as “The Highlands” and could be seen from San Francisco. It contained 40-acres of gardens.

After Long’s death, she remarried Homer Mitten of Willits.

She was also the President of the Women’s Athletic Club of Alameda County and served on their board of directors for many years.

She was a regular fixture in the local society pages.
