The Springfield Armory, Talk

July 6 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am EDT

Did you know that there were more than 20,000 Victory Gardens planted in WWII? Talk with Ed & Deborah Chrzanowski, see their display and learn more about the history of Victory Gardens and rationing on the home front.


Started during the Revolutionary War, the Springfield Armory was the official armory for the United States until 1968. In 1978, the site opened as the Springfield Armory National Historic Site, which contains the original 1840s arsenal houses and the largest collection of government produced guns in the United States. It also focuses on the innovation and manufacturing processes developed at the site.

Springfield Armory National Historic Site is the location of the nation’s first armory (1794 – 1968) and was established by George Washington. The site includes historic grounds, buildings, and the world’s largest historic American military firearms collection.

There is no entrance fee to visit Springfield Armory National Historic Site. The Museum is open Wednesday-Sunday, 9:30am-4:00pm.
