West Springfield in Hampden county, Massachusetts

West Springfield, MA

Today West Springfield is known as the crossroads of New England because it is ideally situated at the intersection of several major highways.

West Springfield is the site of the Jonas Day House, the oldest-known brick salt-box home in the United States. The city is also home to one of the largest agricultural fairs in the nation -the Eastern States Exposition, also known as The Big E. The Big E is held in the fall of every year and attracts about 1 million people with its great food and lively entertainment, including big-name bands and musicians.

West Springfield derives many of its jobs from the commercial activity in the city. It is a proud member of the Springfield-Hartford Knowledge Corridor, a unique partnership that helps to provide jobs and drive the economy in the area. West Springfield residents also have an easy commute of 24 miles to Hartford, CT or just over the bridge into Springfield.

The West Springfield school system consists of seven elementary schools, one middle school and one high school. It constructed a brand new high school that opened early in 2014 and features an Olympic-sized swimming pool, new gymnasium, and an indoor track. The school has an excellent sports program, and offers 27 different MIAA-sanctioned sports.

West Springfield still has views reminiscent of its days as an agricultural community. It has since grown, though, into a thriving city of about 28,500 people.
