Longmeadow, Massachusetts, USA

Longmeadow, Hampden, MA

Discovered by William Pynchon, a Puritan leader, in 1636, the long meadow was a perfect area for grazing, and it also contained may beavers.

Until 1645 the long meadow was in use as a common pasture, to be shared equally by all residents. At this time the land was divided into lots and given to specific families.

The first house was built in the meadows about 1649. Most of the landowners already had homes in Springfield. Indeed, what we today call "Longmeadow" remained part of Springfield until the early 1700’s.
