Innswood is a quiet and quaint neighborhood in historic Longwood, Florida. Located off Markham Woods Road with easy access to I-4 and SR 434. This friendly community is close to everything, including the Wekiva Springs State Park.

The Innswood Longwood FL neighborhood is comprised of less than 20 homes, all with large 1+ acre lots. Families with children have this community on their ‘wish list’ because these homes are zoned for the celebrated Lake Mary School District.

“On many occasions I have had clients tell me to only show them homes that are within the Lake Mary School District because school zoning is their first priority.” shares Karen. The positive reputation this school system enjoys is well deserved. The schools in Seminole County have earned awards and recognition for both their strong educational and athletic programs.

Innswood is located in a popular Orlando city- Longwood. Longwood is a charming city in Seminole County that is known for its rich history and strong sense of community. With a population of 15,087 as of the 2020 census, Longwood is part of the vibrant Orlando–Kissimmee–Sanford Metropolitan Statistical Area.

Longwood experienced significant growth during World War II when military personnel flocked to nearby Naval Air Station Sanford and Orlando Army Air Base. As these military installations expanded, more families began renting or purchasing homes in and around Longwood. In the 1950s, the city had approximately 1,000 residents, and by 1960, Longwood Elementary School was established, becoming an integral part of the community. Ever since this time, this area has been known to be a great place to raise a family…and is still well known as this today.

In the 1960s and 1970s, Longwood experienced a surge in economic opportunities, fueled by both the military and the space industry. Residents found employment at Martin-Marietta’s missile plant, Naval Air Station Sanford, Orlando Air Force Base (later Naval Training Center Orlando), McCoy Air Force Base, Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, and NASA’s John F. Kennedy Space Center. The opening of Walt Disney World in 1971, along with the growth of other tourist attractions and the presence of high-tech industries, including the modeling, simulation, and training sector near the University of Central Florida (formerly Florida Technological University), further propelled Longwood’s development.

As the city grew, Longwood took significant steps in the early 2000s to revitalize its downtown historic district and expand its borders through annexation.

This area of Central Florida cherishes its historical roots while embracing growth and community development. From its humble beginnings to its thriving population, Longwood has evolved into a residential haven within Seminole County. With its commitment to education and a range of public schools, Longwood nurtures its residents and prepares future generations for success. As the city continues to progress, it remains a testament to the enduring spirit and charm of Florida’s vibrant communities.
