Understanding Plain City's Location

confused guy Understanding the geography of Plain City can be challenging due to our unique location. We advise new residents to carefully study their locations to determine their specific resources, school districts, service providers, and more. Plain City is situated in both Madison County (to the south) and Union County (to the north), creating a division that can be difficult to navigate. Surrounding Plain City are various townships, such as Darby Township and Canaan Township in Madison County, as well as Jerome Township and Darby Township in Union County. Moreover, Plain City is located approximately three miles west of the City of Dublin. To add to the confusion, several large residential developments, including New California and Jerome Village, share the same zip code as Plain City, but are actually located in Jerome Township. Education-wise, Plain City falls under the Jonathan Alder Local School District, while portions of neighboring townships are served by Fairbanks Local Schools and Dublin City Schools.
