Longmeadow is an affluent suburban town on the primary corridor between Springfield and Hartford. The town was settled by Springfield residents in the late 1640's and agriculture was the main colonial pursuit. Townspeople continued to turn towards Springfield for industrial, religious and educational needs until 1716, since Longmeadow's lack of much fertile land and water power sources inhibited the commercial and industrial growth of the town. In 1716, however, the first meetinghouse in town was built near the junction of Longmeadow and Williams Streets and the town's first cemetery followed immediately after.

Only for one short period in the mid-19th century did Longmeadow show some significant industrial development, when the manufacture of gold and silver thimbles, spectacles, cloth-covered buttons and bricks provided non-farm jobs in the town. The lack of major industrial capacity may have contributed to the town's gaining the 20th century reputation as being the most desirable of all Springfield's residential suburbs.

Growing as a suburban bedroom community, Longmeadow gained over 4,000 people between 1915 and 1940 and its character as an entirely residential community was established. The town retains handsome Colonial and Federal period houses around the green and historic 19th century houses in the estate district of Forest Park.

It is located in southwestern Massachusetts, bordered by the Connecticut River and Agawam on the west; Springfield on the north; East Longmeadow on the east; and Enfield, Connecticut, on the south. Longmeadow is 91 miles southwest of Boston; 23 miles north of Hartford, Connecticut; and 133 miles from New York City.
