Springfield is a city on the Connecticut River in western Massachusetts. With a population of more than 155,000, Springfield is the largest city in western Massachusetts, and its economic center. Several large corporations are based in Springfield, including Baystate Health, Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance, and dictionary publisher Merriam-Webster. Springfield is also home to a wide range of cultural attractions, including the Basketball Hall of Fame, the Eastern States Exposition, and the Dr. Seuss National Memorial Sculpture Garden, honoring author-illustrator Theodore Geisel, a former resident. In addition, Springfield’s ample green spaces and historic neighborhoods offer a range of living options.

Springfield Overview

First settled in 1636, Springfield initially relied on fur-trading and agriculture for revenue. However, its location at the juncture of the Connecticut and Agawam Rivers lent itself to industrial development, and mills of all sorts were soon established. In 1794, Springfield was chosen as the site of the United States Armory, partly due to the metal-working technology and skilled workers available. The Armory, which operated until 1968, produced the well-known Springfield Rifle and spurred such technological advances as interchangeable parts and mass production. In the 19th century, the arrival of railroads led to another growth spurt, and Springfield incorporated as a city in 1852 . The large number of Victorian mansions and single-family dwellings built during this period earned Springfield the nickname “City of Homes.” Many iconic companies were also founded in Springfield, including revolver manufacturer Smith & Wesson (1856), board-game makers Milton Bradley Company (1860), Indian Motorcycle Manufacturing Company (1901) and Friendly Ice Cream Corporation (1935). As with many New England cities, Springfield’s manufacturing base declined in the late 20th century, and many companies relocated. Industries such as finance, insurance and health care have become more prominent in recent decades.
