SPRINGFIELD HISTORY

Springfield was founded in 1636 by English Puritan William Pynchon as "Agawam Plantation" under the administration of the Connecticut Colony. In 1641 it was renamed after Pynchon's hometown of Springfield, Essex, England, following incidents that precipitated the settlement joining the Massachusetts Bay Colony. It is the first "Springfield" in the United States.  

SPRINGFIELD TRAVEL ROUTES

Springfield is at the "crossroads of New England."  The confluence of the Connecticut , Westfield  Chicopee and Mill Rivers made it the ideal location for President George Washington to locate the United State's first armory.  

Midway between New York and Boston and on the road between New York and Canada, Springfield is ideally located for travel in all directions.  Interstate 91, Mass Pike, I-291, I-391 and numerous other routes leading throughout the New England runs through and around it.
