Short History of Plainfield

Plainfield is a town in Hendricks County, Indiana. Situated within the townships of Guilford, Liberty and Washington, it was part of a tract of land acquired by Jeremiah Hadley in 1822. In 1839, Elias Hadley – after purchasing the land from his father – and Levi Jessup laid out the town. That same year, the Town of Plainfield was incorporated. It got its name from the early Quakers – "plain" people – who settled around the area.

An incident that brought national attention to the town was the spilling of former President Martin Van Buren from his stagecoach in 1842. After Van Buren vetoed a bill to improve the highway ( U.S. Route 40), residents in the town were angered and decided to play a practical joke on him as he passed through the area. The elm tree that caused the accident is now known as Van Buren Elm.

As of the 2010 census, the town has a total area of 22.38 square miles and a population of 27,631 people. In 2019, it was estimated that the population has increased to 35,287. Plainfield is bordered by Avon to the north and Indianapolis to the east. It is located within the vicinity of communities like Magnetic Springs, Joppa, Mooresville, Friendswood, Camby and Decatur. The main road serving the area are Main Street (the National Road or U.S. Route 40), South Avon Avenue and Quaker Boulevard (Indiana State Route 267), and Dwight D. Eisenhower Highway (Interstate 70).
