    Historically the first Springfield in the United States, it is also the largest city in Western Massachusetts and the Pioneer Valley.

    Springfield is notable as birthplace of Theodor Seuss Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss, as well as the city in which James Naismith invented basketball. It is home to the Basketball Hall of Fame and the Springfield Falcons AHL hockey team. It also holds the western world's largest collection of Chinese cloisonné at the G.W. Vincent Smith Art Museum.

    The Springfield Metropolitan Statistical Area consists of three counties - Hampden, Hampshire, and Franklin.
