Longwood Manor Historical Society is going to be needing to do major fundraising to cover the cost to replace the original slate roof.  Part of the roof is at the end of life and may not last through 2024 and another part only has 1-2 years of life left.  If you have any fundraising ideas PLEASE let us know.

Welcome to Longwood Manor

A National Historic Place in Macedonia, Ohio

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Longwood Manor was built in 1924. It's architectural style is Tudor Revival which

was popular among the wealthy in America in the early 1900's.

We are a group of volunteers dedicated to Preserving the History of Macedonia. LMHS is a  501 c 3 non-profit organization, and is registered as a volunteer Committee with the City of Macedonia, Our primary goal is to restore the Manor to it's original condition so it can serve as a public gathering space, Museum and the headquarters of our organization

      The Manor sits on 300 acres of land that belonged  to Colonel William Frew Long the founding Mayor of Macedonia and a Veteran of World War I and II. His land and home, the Manor, were given to the citizens of Macedonia for use as a public park in accordance with his Will upon his death in 1984.
