Traill County Historical Society Fundraising for Plummer House Updates

May 21, 2021 News -- KRJB-KRJM-KKCQ 0

Hillsboro, ND — The Traill County Historical Society is currently fundraising to help restore the Plummer House and expand on to the Pioneer Building in Hillsboro. The overall project is expected to cost around $200,000 and the Traill County Historical Society is hoping to raise half of that through donations and match the other half. John Wright, Plummer House Director, says the plan is to have the original wooden Dutch eaves replaced with replicated metal eaves and then replace the roof with an metal roof as it was when the house was originally built more than 120 years ago.

The Plummer House Museum was closed to the public last year, but they are excited for the opportunity to allow visitors again this summer. Along with their regular visitor hours, Wright says they have a few special events planned as well.

Wright adds that one of the big goals of the Traill County Historical Society is to continue to attract new visitors and get them experiencing the history of the region.
