Welcome to the Town of Plainfield!
Plainfield was chartered in 1761. It developed into an agricultural community which flourished in the 19th and 20th centuries and grew to encompass Plainfield Village, Meriden Village, and East Plainfield. It has become a residential community which values its agricultural heritage and its rural character. In addition, Plainfield residents proudly support outstanding educational opportunities for our children, the preservation of our historic buildings and of our natural resources, and the participatory government which centers on our annual Town Meeting. We hope that as this website evolves, it will continue to reflect the unique character of our Town.
One of many recreational opportunities we enjoy.
