Welcome to the official website for the Town of Plainfield, NH. Plainfield was chartered in 1761. It developed into an agricultural community which flourished in the 19th and 20th centuries and grew to encompass Plainfield Village, Meriden Village, and East Plainfield. It has become a residential community which values its agricultural heritage and its rural character. In addition, Plainfield residents proudly support outstanding educational opportunities for our children, the preservation of our historic buildings and of our natural resources, and the participatory government which centers on our annual Town Meeting. We hope that as this website evolves, it will continue to reflect the unique character of our Town.

Many villages make up the Town of Plainfield. The Plainfield Plain is the home of our annual Fourth of July Parade, "the best little parade in the state of New Hampshire". Meriden village hosts the annual town wide summer picnic known as "Spirit Day".  East Plainfield is the hub of the Pumpkin People invasion now occurring each fall.  These three distinct villages along with many other unnamed neighborhoods all help form the single community of the Town of Plainfield.  No matter where you live in town come participate in our events and traditions and see what makes Plainfield so special!
