Plainsboro is on the southwestern end of Middlesex County in Central New Jersey, a few miles from Princeton University. Its earliest inhabitants were the Unami, a sub-tribe of the Lenape people. The Dutch arrived in the area during the 17th century and began to develop agricultural properties, some of which still exist today.

Officially incorporated on May 6, 1919, the township of Plainsboro was formed from parts of Cranbury and South Brunswick after the two townships refused to build a larger, fireproof school in Plainsboro Village. Today, it covers an area of 12.2 square miles and has a population of about 23,400.
