More than 40 budding ghost hunters joined Flint Hills Paranormal for Spooktember — a public investigation of Plumb Place — Saturday night.

Plumb Place was built in the 1870s and was the home of Preston B. Plumb, his wife Caroline and their children. Preston Plumb died in 1891 while in Washington D.C., and in the years that followed, Caroline Plumb began remodeling the home. When she died in 1919, the home was donated to the Young Women's Christian Association and the carriage house was moved forward and converted into sleeping spaces. It has served as a shelter for women since 1921.
