This sounds like a movie plot, it actually happened in Hillsboro at the Plummer House, which is now the Traill County Museum. It was a goldmine for the preservationists who restored the building to its original glory with Italian tile, glass from New Orleans, and indoor plumbing, a rarity in the 1800s. Special Contributor Brandi Malarkey goes on a tour with Curator LeAnn Beck.
