Camp Framingham

Camp Framingham is a former Massachusetts Army National Guard camp that existed in 1873 to around 1944 in Framingham, Massachusetts. The camp was originally known as Camp Dalton during the 1880s, and was later used as a mobilization center during the Spanish American War, for which it was again used during the Mexican Border Crisis. During May 1942 to December 1943, it became home to the 181st Regimental Combat Team. Today, the Massachusetts State Police and the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency use the camp's former location as their headquarters.[1]

Musterfield Airport was located on the south end of the grounds, although it was not a military facility.[2]
