"A Walk in Time" celebrating the 250th Anniversary of Plainfield Township


As the County of Northampton was defined and established in 1752, it included all of Eastern Pennsylvania both North and Northwest of Bucks County. Jacob Hubler, and Lanart Carne, were appointed by the Court to oversee the Plainfield Township roads in 1755. In December of 1762, Jacob Hubler, was the first of twelve residents to sign a petition to present to the Court of Quarter sessions held in Easton for the County of Northampton. The petitioners’ request to conduct a survey to set the boundaries of Plainfield Township was approved and recorded by the Court on December 24, 1762. The name Plainfield was given to the Township because it was devoid of trees. The Indians had set fire to the area to clear it for driving game through Wind Gap for harvesting. In 2012, after existing for a Quarter-Millennial, Plainfield Township remains a rural community with beautiful views of the Blue Mountains, and preserved farms dotting the landscape.

On July 24, 2012, at the opening ceremonies of the Plainfield Farmers’ Fair, State Representative Marcia Hahn presented a certificate from the PA House of Representatives, and Marta Gabriel a representative from US Senator Pat Toomey’s office presented a certificate commemorating the 250th Anniversary of the Township.

The Township is in the process of planning events to celebrate the 250th Anniversary, your help and participation would be greatly appreciated. “A Walk In Time” 250th Anniversary T-shirts are available for $12 each. If you would like to purchase a T-shirt or help with 250th Anniversary preparations, call 610-759-6944.
