Our STORY

Founded for Preservation

The Longwood Historic Society was founded in 1969 with the mission of identifying and preserving historic buildings. In 1971 the Bradlee-McIntyre House and the Inside-Out House were acquired and in 1973 they were moved to their current locations in historic Longwood.

Through a combination of grants, fundraising efforts and private funds they have been restored to their present condition. In 1998 the Society acquired the Longwood Civic League/Woman's Club building (now referred to as the Historic Civic Center). The restoration process is ongoing while the building is also being used for the Longwood Historic Society membership meetings and public rentals.

The Society conducts a variety of fundraising events each year with the monies dedicated exclusively for the maintenance and restoration efforts of the historic buildings as well as the education of the public about our region's rich history.

Longwood Historic Society has many ways for members to get involved from event committees to outreach committees and projects. All you have to do is contact us with your area of interest and we will welcome your help and support.
