In the Area

Plainfield, known as “The Queen City”, is one of New Jersey’s oldest cities. Attending a PSO performance offers these opportunities to view Plainfield’s rich history and eat at one of the city’s many restaurants. 

Points of interest include:

  • Ten historic districts in Plainfield (more than any other New Jersey city)

  • Shakespeare Garden, located in Cedarbrook Park, listed on the National and State Registers of Historic Places

  • Swain Gallery, showcasing work by accomplished local and other New Jersey artists

  • The 1746 Drake House Museum, a Quaker Meeting House which served as temporary headquarters for George Washington during the Battle of Short Hills

  • Extensive offering of diverse authentic cuisines that makes Plainfield a foodie’s delight (including the state’s best jelly doughnut and a Texas weiner (chili dog) from the noted “granddaddy of New Jersey chili dog joints!”)
