Pictorial history of Longmeadow, MA by Dr. Thomas L. Higgins- ISBN-13 978-1-4671-2925-1, Soft cover book, Published July 2018

Longmeadow, Massachusetts, lies along the east bank of the Connecticut River, just north of the Connecticut state line. The area's rich history predates its 1636 Puritan settlement by tens of thousands of years. Native Americans of the Agawam tribe called the area Masacksic, referring to the long meadows along the Quinneckiot River. Following the Revolutionary War, Longmeadow became the first town chartered by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Notable residents include Rev. Stephen Williams, the "boy captive of Deerfield," and John "Johnny Appleseed" Chapman. The town's picturesque green is surrounded by historic 18th- and 19th-century homes. As one of Springfield's first "streetcar suburbs," its second wave of growth was landscaped in park like neighborhoods by the Olmsted Brothers organization. Construction of Interstate 91 fueled a third growth wave, resulting in today's population of nearly 16,000.
