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.
