Camp Framingham is a former Massachusetts National Guard camp that existed in 1873 to 1944 in Framingham, Massachusetts. The camp was used by all units of the Massachusetts Volunteer Militia as their summer training ground. The camp also contained the state arsenal where weapons and equipment was stored and issued to units. Camp Framingham was also used as a mobilization station during the Spanish–American War, June 1916 during the Mexican border call-up and during the summer of 1917 during World War I.From May 1942 to December 1943, HQ, 181st Infantry Regiment was stationed with its companies serving on coast patrol duty in New England. In 1948, Camp Framingham was transferred from the Military Division to the Massachusetts State Police.
