Plumb Place Steering Committee


The Plumb Place Steering Committee and Flint Hills Paranormal invite the Emporia community for an opportunity to tour the Plumb Family home and/or participate in Farewell to the Spirits of Plumb House paranormal investigation prior to the listing of the house for sale.  

The Plumb house, built by Emporia founding father and Kansas Senator Preston B. Plumb as the family residence, was donated in 1919 by the Plumb children to the Emporia Community.  The home stood as a residence for women under the auspices of the YWCA, Lyon County Community Center, and Plumb Place until Plumb Place's closure at the end of 2020.

Prior to the event, the Plumb Place Board will be offering public tours of the building from 6-7 p.m. No tickets are required for this portion of the evening. Free will donations are encouraged.

Tickets to the Farewell

Tickets are $25 and can be purchased at:


Date: October 23, 2021

Time: 7 - 12 pm

Due to space limitations at Plumb Place, only 45 tickets will be sold. No tickets will be sold at the door and you will not be admitted without proof of your ticket purchase. This is a "no frills" investigation, so there will not be any food, but water will be provided. Tickets sales money will go to the Plumb Place organization.

Check-in begins at 7 p.m. The doors will be locked at 7:45 p.m. No one will be allowed in after that time due to safety concerns.


This event is for 14 years or older only (under 18 must be with a parent or guardian).
No alcohol is allowed (if you show up drunk you will be asked to leave).
No smoking on the Plumb House property.
You will need to be able to climb stairs.

There is not any place to sit in the building, so you will have to stand or sit on the floor.

There is NO working bathroom in the Plumb House. You will need to go to the gas station next door. Breaks will be given during the evening.
