In 1818, Isaac Bigelow founded the town of Westminster, which in 1872 was renamed Plain City. The town had the advantage of being located on early Post Road, which was a main thoroughfare for settlers traveling to the west. In the 1820s, businesses sprang up as the area’s population increased. Today, Plain City is witnessing exceptional residential growth thanks to its enviable small town charm and proximity to metropolitan Columbus.
