Longwood Florida – Centrally located within Seminole County, the City of Longwood was named after a suburb of Boston by the original homesteader, Edward Warren Henck. Some of the earliest settlers came to the area in the 1850’s but many left after the Great Freeze of December 1894. In 1923 the Town of Longwood became incorporated as a city.

The well planned, family communities encouraged stringent school standards attributing to some of the best schools in the nation. This has resulted in Longwood being a sought after city for families with school-aged children.

Points of interest:

Home to possibly Florida’s oldest tourist attraction, The Senator, a 3000 year old bald cypress. What we now call Big Tree Park was once a wilderness sanctuary for early Indian tribes.

In 2014 the City received recognition from WJXT Channel 4, an independent television station in Jacksonville, as one of the 4 safest places to raise a family in Florida. Most recently Bestplaces.net named Longwood as one of the top 10 best places to live in Florida.
