A new home in Plainfield.
Plainfield’s rich history still permeates it today. The town was established in 1839 by Quakers, and the name Plainfield reflects the Quakers’ devotion to simplicity and “plainness.” The Quaker church is still very active in Plainfield, and Plainfield High School’s athletic teams are known as the Quakers and Lady Quakers.
Built along the historic National Road (U.S. 40, which becomes Main Street through Plainfield), Plainfield’s historic town center, recently refreshed thanks to façade grants, is a welcoming spot within this community of more than 30,000.
Today, Plainfield is well known in the Indianapolis area for its parks and trails. Six parks, all situated along White Lick Creek, are linked together by a series of trails, and Plainfield’s overall Greenway Plan intends to connect schools, libraries, business and residential areas with trails, sidewalks and paths.
With its strategic location near the Indianapolis International Airport, Plainfield is also home to distribution centers for a wide variety of companies, including Walmart and Amazon.
Housing is affordable, with most single family homes in the $100,000s and $200,000s, although a few communities offer higher price points. New construction can also be found, as builders work to meet the demand for Plainfield homes. Along with affordable housing, an excellent public school system makes living in Plainfield attractive for families. With all its amenities, including the Shops at Perry Crossing, big box stores, libraries and restaurants, Plainfield is quite self-contained. All that Indianapolis has to offer is just a short drive away, though!

Plainfield Aquatic and Recreation Center – The Plainfield Aquatic and Recreation Center has everything needed to get and stay in shape, including group fitness classes, cardio machines, basketball courts and an indoor lap pool.

Sodalis Nature Park – Get back to nature at Sodalis Nature Park, 210 acres of beautiful, mature woodlands and reforestation area. This park is situated within a permanently protected conservation area that was established to protect the endangered Indiana bat (Myotis sodalis). Along with bats, you may come across beavers, deer, ducks and much more as you hike the trails. Fishing at the large pond is permitted (catch and release only). 7700 S. County Rd. 975 E., Plainfield
Oasis Diner – Located on historic U.S. 40, the Oasis Diner was saved from likely demolition in 2010 when the City of Plainfield relocated it and Indiana Landmarks sold it to its present owners. Now restored to its original 1954 luster, the diner serves updated diner staples with a Southern twist and hand-crafted sodas (try the butterscotch root beer!). What an amazing slice of history! 405 W. Main St., Plainfield
