Plainfield, IL is a village in Will County. It encompasses land in Plainfield and Wheatland townships. Part of the village is located in Kendall County (Na-Au-Say and Oswego townships). As the oldest community in Will County, Plainfield’s growth and prosperity was stunted in 1848 due to the opening of the I&M Canal and not being located along that waterway.

The Village of Plainfield established a community Preservation Commission and historic preservation ordinance to protect the Lake Renwick Preserve, a county forest preserve used for birdwatching and other activities.

Located within the Village are numerous Greek Revival, upright-and-wing cottages, a school built in 1847, and a number of early-19th-century homes. The community currently has three buildings listed on the National Register of Historic Places: Plainfield House, Flanders House and a 1928 Standard Oil Gas Station.

Plainfield Community Consolidated School District 202 serves Plainfield and portions of Joliet, Crest Hill, Bolingbrook, Romeoville, and Plainfield Township in unincorporated parts of Will County.
