When I meet someone for the first time and mention that I live in Plainville, Massachusetts, I'm often met with suspicion.
“Right, and I grew up in Smallville,” they might be thinking.
Other times, people seem to follow me but then say, “Oh, that's in western Mass, right?”
“Not exactly, maybe you're thinking of Plainfield. I live in Plainville.”
Plainville is located between Providence, RI and Boston, MA, and most certainly in the eastern part of the state. Plainville is the southwestern-most town in Norfolk County, bordering Wrentham (north), Foxborough (east), North Attleborough (south), and Cumberland, RI (west).
