Plymouth Congregational Church
This Greek Revival frame building, now known as Plymouth Congregational Church, was built in 1850 and dedicated 14 January 1851 by the members of the Plainfield Congregational Church who organized their congregation in the mid 1830s.
The building was remodeled in the early 1900s and an addition to the west and north was completed in 2002.
Located in the Village of Plainfield, which evolved from an early pioneer community in the Will County region, the historic structure continues to serve the original purpose for which it was erected.
