Plattville is a village in Lisbon Township, Kendall County, Illinois, United States. The village was first formed in 1860 and was named after founder Daniel Platt,[2] who first built a home there in 1834 on the Frink and Walker stagecoach route between Chicago and Ottawa, Illinois.[3]

He was instrumental in his role in incorporating the village of Plattville in the mid-2000s, and spent some of his own money to file the town's incorporation papers.[6]
