Vibrant and enterprising, the centerpiece of Plainfield is its historic downtown. Restored buildings, decorative signage, and a pedestrian-focused layout all encourage visitors to shop, dine al fresco, and linger in social exchanges with neighbors. Downtown also hosts many events throughout the year including festivals, summer concerts, car shows, seasonal events, live music and wine tastings. Plainfield is rumored to be the origins of the ice cream sundae, when a druggist (responding to customer demand) added syrup on top of ice cream and called it a “Sonntag” meaning Sunday in German. Many visitors know the iconic Route 66, which crosses through Plainfield, but fewer know the significance of the Lincoln Highway, which also passes through the village. Constructed in 1913, the Lincoln Highway was the first paved trans-continental highway to stretch 3,400 miles from New York to San Francisco. The meeting of these two great roads marks the intersection of the two longest highways in the world.
