History

History

history arkansas

In 1653 William Pynchon purchased the land from Native American tribes, now Springfield. The town was initially founded for fur trading and, in 1641, was named and incorporated in honor of William Pynchon. Springfield officially became a city in May 1852. Its proximity to the Connecticut River meant that Springfield was an ideal location for transportation. The early settlers found this beneficial in their dealings between Boston, New York, and Canada. Being the crossroads for New England ensured its steady progress and economic development. By the eighteenth century, Springfield's economic mainstay of agriculture became less dominant, and the industrial revolution began to take root. Soon mills of all kinds were established, harnessing the power of the Connecticut River. Due to its ideal location and rapid technological advancement, Springfield became home to the United States Armory in 1794. The nineteenth-century ushered in a second industrial boom for Springfield. This boom was due to the railroad and the city becoming the center of railway activity for Massachusetts. With the railway came printing industries and machine manufacturing. As the town grew, other economic avenues arose, such as prosperous finance and insurance companies. By the 1990s, Springfield was an affluent city with a population of 156,983. Today this city is known for its well-established school systems and is a regional hub for banking and courts. In addition, Springfield is a flourishing, multifaceted economy with a location that ensures future technological growth and development. This positioning means only good things for the people of Springfield.
