This five story house is the former home of Henry S. Plummer, who was a member of the Mayo Clinic Staff in 1901; the house features forty nine rooms and eleven acres of landscaped grounds that include roses, a flower garden, and a water tower.
I actually just went to the Plummer house as a part of my Mayo Clinic Social media class this past weekend on a field trip. This was my first time there and I LOVED IT! It was beautiful! A beautiful old building, I loved everything about it.
I took a lot of pictures inside the building, pictures of the hallway, the elevator doors, and my favorite was the drinking water fountain. All the pictures I took inside the building were in multiples, I remember taking at least 3-4 pictures of the BEAUTIFUL drinking fountain, 2-3 of the elevator doors and 2 of the hallway. I took multiples because I just couldn't capture the perfect picture that would do justice for it's beauty.
Outside, I took a few pictures of the Bronze doors...
So... What's so strange about this?
Well when I got back home and wanted to upload photos of my trip, I have noticed that all the pictures I have captured INSIDE the building were gone, as if they were deleted magically off of my phone. You would have to touch and hold down a finger and select Delete to erase those particular pictures off my phone. I found it strange that all my other pictures from the other buildings of the Mayo were fine, the pictures of the big Bronze doors were also fine, all the multiples were there.
My question is, Has anyone else experienced this?
I am sad that I no longer have pictures of the beautiful place, Bummer, I even remember looking at the captured photo on my phone.
The Plummer House is AMAZING! I have been to it many times and when I was searching for a location for my wedding in 2006 I wanted something historic. My obvious options were the Mayowood House or the Plummer House. I called about the Plummer House first and got the day I wanted right away so I knew it was fate. My wedding was beautiful, we had the ceremony outside in the garden and the reception inside the house. Both families had a wonderful time.
I do have to agree with some of the other comments about it possibly being haunted. I did feel some strange sensations while being in the maid's quaters, the basement, and up by the ballroom. I never felt threatened in those areas- just watched. It's funny because in the other areas of the house you feel so peaceful and content.
The Plummer House was a great deal. It was around $500 to rent it for the whole day (from 8 am-10 pm).
You know I've only been here twice but both times I and several membersof my family, infact a significant amount have expeirienced something... supernatural. I know its an old house and thus you must bear in mind that unless your a trained expert most sounds can be explained away, but there were several cold spots that you could feel SLOWLY moving. And there was a voice that was unexplained coming from the ball room. (however in the ballroom ther is a fire place so you can explain away the cold spots way up there). I had a camera when I was poking about in the basement, and the battery ran dead. Thankfully I kept in mind that when hunting the paranormal you should always bring all the batteries you own(fully charged). I have yet to reveiw the tape as It had fallen into the waterfall out back (dont ask). I just think its worth checking out by some one with more experience than I, and better equiptment than a simple camera and voice recorder.
I have been to the Plummer House a couple of times. Once when it was all decorated inside for Christmas. And for my dad's wedding. My dad's wedding was beautiful. It may have been the hottest day of the year, but it was a great place to have a wedding.
I took the self-guided tour (available weekly during summer months) and was very impressed with this beautiful home built in 1917. I especially liked the sunrooms accessed from so many different areas of the house. The ballroom is a surprising discivery on the third floor. The views out of every window are charming and restful. It was fun to imagine living in such a place! I especially like the fact that visitors had freedom to roam through the rooms without barriers. A lovely place to visit! Well worth the $3 fee.
