The town of Plainfield is located in the northwestern part of the state in Windham County, near the Rhode Island border. In 1699 the town was incorporated under the name of Quinebaug. Thanks to governor Fitz-John Winthrop, it received its modern name only a year later. The town shortly became a huge industrial center due to its fertile soil and rivers. The development of the local railroad also had a huge impact on the town’s economy.
Today, Plainfield is known for being one of the safest places in the state with great educational opportunities.
