Over the last twenty years members of the Plainfield Historical Society have been working to create an inventory of all of Plainfield’s historic houses, buildings and landscapes. Finally,  this arduous process was completed and the complete inventory is available to view on the MACRIS website. Recently the  Massachusetts Historical Commission  notified the Plainfield Historical Society that our proposal has been accepted and we now have our own historic district. Below is linked  information to help residents understand the need for, and effects of, this district.
