In 1839, the Union Congregational Church Society bought a half acre of land from Jeremiah Dow on the east side of the main street in Plainfield Village. Colonel Charles Eggleston, a local resident famous for the building of brick structures, built their meeting house. This fifty-foot by forty-foot structure was also known as Old South Church, but is now best known as the Blow-Me-Down Grange.
The Blow Me Down Grange in Plainfield village has been completely restored over the past several years. The 1839 buildin is now on the National Register of Historic Places.
