Springfield’s Historic Cannon Ball House, located at 126 Morris Ave., will be holding an open house on June 25 to commemorate the 237th anniversary of the Battle of Springfield.
This conflict was the final major battle of the Revolutionary War to be fought in the northern colonies. Many artifacts from this occurrence are on display, including the missile that gave the structure its name.
In addition, a variety of exhibits on the second floor will also mark the centennial of America’s entry into World War I. These include the display of political cartoons by the artist Louis Raemaekers as well as artifacts from WWI that have ties to Springfield.
So join us at the Historic Cannon Ball House to discover more about Springfield’s military past.
House Hours: Sunday, June 25 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.
House Admission: $2 for adults and free for children 12 and under.
