Fort Springfield, after the government shut it down

The government once closed Fort Springfield, which devastated the city's liquor and prostitution industries. This, in turn, lead the entire city into an economic slump, with record unemployment rates. It was because of this, that the city decided to legalize gambling, to help recover from the slump.[3]
