Downtown Plainfield is a vibrant, pedestrian-focused destination for shopping, dining, and entertainment. The dramatic streetscape enhancement and road reconstruction, completed in 2009, created raised intersections, mid-block pedestrian crossings, and wide sidewalks to establish a comfortable environment for pedestrians to shop and enjoy the backdrop of many of the beautifully restored historic buildings. The expanded sidewalks provide room for restaurants to offer al fresco outdoor dining. Decorative signage and extensive landscaping complement the historic architecture and contribute to Downtown Plainfield’s distinctive sense of place.
The area was called Walkers’ Grove until it was platted as Plainfield in 1841. It was originally settled by a large community of Potawatomi, and the land was later bequeathed to the United States as part of the Treaty of St. Louis (1816) with the Council of the Three Fires. Indian Boundary Road aligns with the western border of the tract of land originally ceded.
The earliest Europeans in the area were French fur traders. The first European settler in the area was James Walker, who traveled with his father-in-law, Methodist Reverend Jessie Walker traveled here in 1826 where he established a small mission for the Potawatomi Indians. James Walker, Jesse Walker’s son-in-law, traveled with him and became the first European to claim land in the area in 1828.
In 1828, James Walker, in the company of several men, erected a sawmill around which the settlement of Walkers’ Grove developed.
Plainfield is identified as the oldest community in Will County because the earliest settlement of Walkers’ Grove was established on the banks of the DuPage River by 1828. However, the actual Village of Plainfield was platted immediately north of Walkers’ Grove in 1834 by Chester Ingersoll. The separate community of East Plainfield was platted in June 1836 by James Mathers who began selling lots in July 1836. In addition, he also constructed a gristmill and a mill race west of Water Street. Water Street would later become Plainfield-Naperville Road. Ingersoll’s Planefield (Plainfield) which comprised lots in Section 16, along with Mather’s East Plainfield lots in Section 10 and Levi Arnold’s plat of Section 9 all became joined to create the present-day village after the death of Levi Arnolds in 1845.
Walkers’ Grove flourished because of the DuPage River and established routes to Fort Dearborn in Chicago, as well as to Ottawa. Reuben Flagg hauled lumber from Walker’s mill to Chicago in order to erect the first two frame structures in the city (P.F.W. Peck House and the George Dole Forwarding House). Chicago also depended upon the settlement for mail and supplies.
On August 28, 1990, the Plainfield Tornado, an F5 tornado, went through the Village and parts of Crest Hill and Joliet, killing 29 people and injuring hundreds. A population explosion started to take form at the end of the 20th century after the tornado. This made way for a large number of new home subdivisions. Before the population boom, Plainfield was primarily an agricultural town.
