What Bert Has To Say About Springfield Metro Area

Springfield, once a major center of industrial innovation, is the state’s third-largest city and a regional health, retail and financial center. Locals are credited with development of the Springfield Rifle, the 1895 Duryea motorcar, and basketball (thanks to Dr. James Naismith, in 1891. Some credit the motorcycle to area inventors and the early Indian Manufacturing Company. At one time that area was a significant manufacturing center, but most has left the area (including most recently a forge that made Craftsman tools).
