The Longwood Historic District is a U.S. historic district (designated as such on October 5, 1990) located in Longwood, Florida. The district is bounded by West Pine Avenue, South Milwee Street, Palmetto Avenue and CR 427. It contains 37 historic buildings, including the Bradlee-McIntyre House and the Longwood Hotel.
Longwood has been a destination point for Florida travelers since coastal tribes used The Senator, an ancient bald cypress, to find their way overland from the St. Johns River to trading grounds at Spring Hammock. This was what the wilderness sanctuary early tribes found when they escaped inland from the Spanish.
Later, when Creeks and others from the tribes of the Southeast United States fled into Spanish Florida and settled new villages among escaped African slaves, they became the Seminoles. The word “Seminole” is adopted from Spanish and Creek terms for people who live away from others. The Senator, at more than 3000 years old, is easily Central Florida’s oldest tourist attraction and can still be seen today at Big Tree Park in Seminole County’s Spring Hammock Preserve near Longwood.
