Plainfield is where the Hidden Hills touch the Berkshires proper.
The village sits at the base of West Mountain, with Mt. Greylock towering beyond it to the west. The meeting of the Deerfield and Westfield Rivers serve to give the place a cool and refreshing feel, particularly in the autumn and spring seasons.

The 1953 National Book Award winner Ralph Ellison made
Plainfield his home, until the novelistís house tragically burned
down in 1967. The author claimed that the fire destroyed 300
pages from his follow-up novel to the successful Invisible Man,
which was never published in his lifetime.
