Overview


Springfield traces the unique history of a community that began as an agrarian hamlet of three houses and became a modern suburb. Important during the Revolutionary War, it was the site of the final battle fought in the North. Transportation played a key role in its development, with the Morris and Essex and the Springfield Turnpikes and, later, the Rahway Valley Railroad and Routes 29 and 78 providing ever faster routes to nearby major cities. Today, the township has eleven houses of worship and several service clubs, veterans associations, and other civic organizations.
