In 1917 Dr. Henry S. Plummer and his wife Daisy, began construction of “Quarry Hill” later to be known as the Plummer House. Dr. Plummer personally formulated the plans for the house which included many innovations that were far advanced for that day and age.
In 1924 the 65 acre estate consisted of the house, greenhouse, water tower, garage and gazebo. Today 11 acres remain and are maintained by the Rochester Park and Recreation Department.
In 1901 Dr. Mayo asked Dr. Plummer to join the Mayo Clinic staff. This relationship was to last for the next 35 years to the mutual benefit of both parties. Dr. Plummer is given credit for many innovative ideas that were implemented during his tenure. Among the most outstanding was his invention of the pneumatic tube, the communication system, and record keeping system.
Daisy Plummer, a gifted musician and friend to all, was a remarkable individual in her own right. A concert pianist and patron of the arts, she was very fond of promoting cultural activities in the city.
