History of Longwood
The New England Baptist Hospital School of Nursing school was originally located on the hospital grounds but relocated to a separate campus in 1922. The building was endowed to New England Baptist trustee and paper mill owner Edward Haskell. The core structure of the building was built in 1922 and designed by Edward Sears Read, a young architect and son of William T. Sears, a prominent architect in the New England area.
The New England Baptist School of Nursing was a beautiful, well-preserved brick campus designed in the Jacobethan-style of architecture. The nursing campus was expanded twice in 1931 and 1940. At the height of its popularity, there were approximately 200 students enrolled, with a full-time faculty of 26. After celebrating its 100 year anniversary, the school closed in 1996. The building was reopened again in the summer of 2002 by Landmark as an assisted living facility to help continue serving the community and provide senior care in a meaningful way.
At Landmark at Longwood, we offer grand one-bedroom, studio, and alcove apartments with kitchenettes, private bathrooms, and individual climate control and more including:
I have been living at Longwood for nearly five years. It’s clean, comfortable, and easy to get around. It’s beautifully landscaped with seating areas and in warm weather they have cookouts. In warmer weather day trips are planned to beaches, museums, zoos and shopping malls. In-house, you can interact with other residents to play bingo and other fun games, etc.
The staff at Landmark from Administration to Aides is top notch. There is always someone to listen and to come to help you if you need it. My fears of the unknown quickly subsided and I felt a part of a new family. I am very happy to find Landmark and hope to live here for a long time
