“coool place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2013

Dr. Plummer seemed like an extremely innovative individual and the design within this house follows that notion. I took pictures of the intercom system he built which must have been one of the first of its kind. He was the one that revolutionized the hospitals telephone systems so it doesn't quite surprise me.

“A classic summery walk or event location.”

Perfect place for weddings, graduation parties, or a quiet afternoon stroll. The grounds are maintained beautifully.

“an ok building”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2013

its an ok building nothing much to say and its a nice building in rochester,mn and it has lots of history behind it. And it has a lot of history behind the mayo clinic and the mayo brothers, I think.

“Good place for events and afternoon walks”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2013

Went for a nostalgic walk on the grounds of Plummer House. Some areas with good vantage points of the surrounding areas. This is a great location managed by the Rochester Parks and Recreation. In April, 2011 we had our post wedding reception at this venue, hence the nostalgic walk. It was easy to arrange and work with the administration to set it up and they were very accommodating. Highly recommend it as an event venue.

“MEMORIES BUILT HERE”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2013

My fiance, now my wife, was teaching at Kenyon while I was completing my second year of post-graduate study in St. Paul. We spent many a wonderful dinner hour here, and were never disappointed. Here is where we laid the groundwork for our marriage while we enjoyed delicious and tasty meals. We've never forgotten the experience, and we will be going back again to renew old memories.
