Preserving Our History

In the construction of a new little league sports complex, the town of Plainfield will be preserving several historic buildings once part of the Indiana Boys’ School.  The Boys’ School was located to Plainfield by the State in the 1860s. Many of the structures on the campus – such as the Apple house and Orchard house – were built by the students, who even cast and fired the bricks on site. I suppose such was normal back then, but now it sounds cool. Anyway, glad to see the Town Council take steps to preserve these structures and incorporate them into the newest addition to Plainfield’s vast park system.
