This once small agriculture town has boomed in the last 10 years with more than 2k new residents. To keep up with the growth, neighborhoods are expanding and a new elementary school is being added to the community. The middle school and high school for North Plains are actually located in the neighboring city of Hillsboro, since North Plains technically falls under Hillsboro’s School District.

Every summer they hold a Fourth of July celebration and host the world famous Elephant Garlic Festival where artists from all over the state come to trade goods and eat great food, infused with garlic of course. Garlic ice cream anyone?! The town also provides a summer concert series and year round activities at the library for all ages.
