I've decided to share weekly stories and information about the history of the house, the Plummer family, and stories about our experiences living here for the past 23 years along with photos of the grounds and house. We've had some interesting experiences here!This first post will just be an introduction. Dr Plummer has stories to tell and so do WE. Like the fact that some people think it is haunted; that even though Dr Plummer ( in the future I'll refer to him as Henry ) was a genius, he was also absent minded and there are stories about his absent-mindedness; that famous people have been guests here like Helen Keller and Ann Sullivan and other fun and interesting tidbits of information.
HISTORY: It took 7 years to build the house, from 1917 to 1924, and was owned by Dr Henry Plummer. Dr Plummer was one of the original doctors working with the Mayo Brothers at the Mayo Clinic. The Mayo Clinic is world famous, treating patients here from all over the world, and having the distinction of having many famous people as patients including many of our Presidents. The Dali Lama is also a regular patient here at the clinic being one of the few who doesn't mind the publicity. In Rochester we're used to seeing limos followed by security vehicles knowing that inside the dark glassed cars, there are dignitaries who will be going through the clinic or here for surgery.
