Plainview, Pierce, NE

Plainview was first settled around 1871 by William B. Chilvers... The first post office was established in 1872 and the township was named Roseville, in honor of Charles Rose, who was appointed the first Postmaster. In 1874, the name of the post office and the area were renamed to Plainview, after an early settler Christian Lerum made the suggestion. Over much deliberation with several names that the new community should be, Lerum attended a meeting and suggested Plainview after the peaceful flat area and a community in Minnesota where he traveled through. The early town fathers liked Lerum's suggestion and Plainview became a township.

The town was officially platted in 1880 and contained two general stores, two blacksmiths, two agricultural implement dealers, one drug store, one hotel, one doctor, two churches (Methodist and Congregational) and roughly 80 settlers. In April of 1886, the town was incorporated and officially became Plainview Township...
