Love love love this place!! It’s a beautiful place for a walk. The grounds are open to the public but the house is only open for reserved events.

Although we didn’t know the tours through the home were on Wednesday’s, we were still able to tour the grounds for free! The home and grounds are beautiful and well worth the visit! So please take the time to go check out the property!

We saw a sign for an antique sale at the Plummer House we live here in town never been there. When we arrived we were pleasantly surprised with the nice areas to walk sit and relax. Historical part of it is pretty neat as well.
