The Springfield Armory was the primary center for the manufacture of U.S. military small arms from 1794 to 1968. Here were developed and manufactured the 1903 Springfield, M1 Garand, and M14 rifles, among other small arms. It is now the home of the Springfield Armory National Historic Site, whose museum displays an impressive collection of weapons. A double musket rack, partially filled with 645 Springfield US Model 1861 rifles, is commemorated as the Rifle Organ in Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s poem, "The Arsenal at Springfield."

Springfield Technical Community College is also located on the armory's grounds.
