East Longmeadow in Hampden county, Massachusetts

East Longmeadow

East Longmeadow is located in the southwestern part of Massachusetts, surrounded by Enfield, CT to the south, Springfield to the north, Longmeadow to the west, and Hampden to the east.

East Longmeadow was first settled in 1720 and was later officially incorporated as its own town in 1894. It began as pastures and farmland, and then with the discovery of quarries, Longmeadow quickly became the site for quarrying red and brown sandstone. This sandstone was used in the construction of such buildings as the original Smithsonian Institute in Washington, D.C.

In the 20th century, East Longmeadow’s industry shifted from quarrying stone, and it became a suburb of Springfield, the nearest large city. The town continues to maintain its rural,yet suburburban status.

East Longmeadow includes the beautiful Heritage Park. Walt Seifert Pond in the center of the park is a picturesque place to spot swan and fish. Not far from there are playing fields for soccer and baseball, as well as a picnic area. East Longmeadow’s central rotary is home to a number of small shops and local restaurants. The town is also famous for its annual Thanksgiving Day football game between East Longmeadow and Longmeadow, which draws thousands of spectators.

East Longmeadow is an easy commute to any number of the major cities. It is about 27 miles to Hartford, CT and 7 miles to Springfield.

The East Longmeadow school system consists of three elementary schools, one middle school, and one high school.
