What a Move to Plainfield Has to Offer

Plainfield is a village of roughly 40,000 residents in Will County, Illinois, which incorporates sections of the Wheatland and Plainfield townships. The population has grown substantially in the last 25 years as the Chicago suburbs have expanded and former farmland has been subdivided for development. It is home to the Lake Renwick Preserve, a forest preserve for bird conservation, birdwatching, biking, and fishing.

Originally Indian land, it was acquired by the U.S. in the Treaty of St. Louis. A settler named James Walker erected a sawmill, and the area soon became known as Walker's Grove. Other early settlers were Chester Ingersoll and James Mathers. Mathers constructed a grist mill and mill race west of Water Street. Water Street later became what is known as Plainfield-Naperville Road today. The route from Plainfield to Chicago was used to haul lumber and other materials there, including mail, and for this reason, Plainfield is sometimes known as "The Mother of Chicago." Abolitionists in Plainfield established it as a stop on the Underground Railroad.

There are many historic structures in Plainfield, including a one-room schoolhouse that may be Illinois' oldest. Buildings that are listed on the National Register of Historic Places include Flanders House, the house belonging to one of the largest early landholders; Plainfield House, an early tavern, inn, and meeting hall; and a 1928 Standard Oil gas station built in a Spanish style.

At one point, U.S Route 66 and Lincoln Highway, the two longest paved highways in the world, crossed each other in Plainfield. Today the village is served by these roads: Interstate 55, U.S. Route 30 and Illinois Routes 59 and 126. PACE buses run regular weekday rush hour service to downtown Chicago.
