Plato Township: Planning the Future, Preserving the Past

The rural tradition of our township endures, side-by-side with growth and development.

Founded in 1835, Plato Township's 36 square miles includes rolling farmland, country roads, and town centers, as well as residential subdivisions and commercial development.

Past and Present:

Plato Township began in the 1800's as a quiet farming community with approximately 200 residents. Today, Plato is a bustling suburban hub of northern Illinois.

The Future:

The spirit of our community is its people. Today, Plato's residents and elected officials are working together to preserve its heritage while preparing for tomorrow. We invite both new and long-time residents to join us in building Plato's future.
