Two outstanding commanding officers, Roswell Lee and James W. Ripley, set the tone for Springfield Armory's development in the first half of the 19th century. They envisioned a "Grand National Armory," with stately buildings arranged around a central Green, testifying to the growing strength and pride of the federal government.
As early as the 1840s, travelers remarked that the setting resembled a college campus. Today it is a college campus, and Springfield Technical Community College uses the Green for hosting athletic and community events.
