Park Closes Temporarily Due To Nearby Tornado Impacts

Springfield Armory National Historic Site

National Park News

On Wednesday, June 1st, at least one tornado touched down in the city of Springfield and surrounding communities. The funnel passed just to the south of Springfield Armory National Historic Site, sparing it from any damage. Due to the ongoing cleanup and traffic issues throughout the city and along the main entrance route to the park up State Street, though, the park was closed throughout the weekend. Plans are to resume normal operations this morning.
