The Plainfield Inn is open for business during our final stages of construction and is located just south of Lockport Street in the heart of town. This historic building began it's journey as a schoolhouse in 1851 and became a home in 1882.

This beautiful building has only been home to three families in the last 135 years- the Goodson/Herrington family line, the French family and now the Myers family.

Stay at the Inn in one of three second floor suites, each with their own bathrooms..
