Longmeadow Massachusetts Homes For Sale
The year was 1636. William Pynchon, a Puritan leader and Treasurer of the Massachusetts Bay Company, was navigating northward on the Connecticut River in search of an ideal meadow to establish a trading post and Puritan plantation.
Having found what he thought was an ideal spot, Pynchon purchased the land from the Agawam Indians who referred to the area as "Masacksic" or ""The long meadow.
Annual flooding of the meadow by the Connecticut River resulted in moving the settlement high on a hill overlooking the river.
By 1714 many homes were built along Longmeadow Street around a common green, the centerpiece of the town, then and now.
In the years that followed, Longmeadow slowly grew. The eastern section of town, East Village, split from the West Village in 1894 and became the Town of East Longmeadow.
Ultimately, Longmeadow, East Longmeadow, Agawam, West Springfield, Chicopee, Holyoke and Wilbraham became bedroom communities surrounding Springfield, the marketplace Mecca.
