Upon entering the Plumer Street home most people say that you cannot deny an unexplained chill that embodies your very being right down to the bone. The home is the oldest two-story home on the street, known for a number of mysterious deaths, secrets, and tortured sprits that appear to be forever shackled within the confining restraints of the walls that cannot speak of what is hidden deep inside their depths.

Tortured Spirits, Cold Chills and Hidden Walkways Greet You at the Plumer Street House

Hidden walkways tucked deep inside of ornate wallpapered walls, accidental and premature deaths that typically involve children are certainly not the makeup of a happy home by any means, and are in fact the makeup of a disturbingly contorted recipe of one of the worst hauntings in Nebraska. The small village of Maxwell, Nebraska in Lincoln County has always been known for its quiet small town creature comforts from a heartland prairie vibe and extremely beautiful sunsets to an unusual calm serenity and killer landscapes. Somehow all of this is lost once you step foot into one of the oldest two-story home on Plumer Street, known for a number of mysterious deaths, secrets, and tortured sprits that appear to be forever shackled within the confining restraints of the walls that cannot speak of what is hidden deep inside their depths.

The house stands alone in the small sleepy community of Maxwell, where no obvious signs of serenity or calm exist because of its horrifying past. Residents from long ago of the notably haunted Plumer Street house were once forced to endure the constant cries and wailing of babies, and children while attempting to handle the other strange phenomenon that threatened their very existence while residing in the home. Some past residents expressed the feeling of going insane due to their inability to save these helpless infants and small beings from being tortured from an unseen hell that they once unwillingly partook in.

The sight of an empty rocking chair moving slowly about has been noted by more than one inhabitant of the home, and a few have caught a glimpse of a ghostly young woman dressed in a white satin nightgown while nursing a newborn babe. Thudding noises are a constant source of irritation to those seeking peace in the home, and lights randomly flicker on and off. The death toll of children who have lost their lives in the home is only an estimate, but it is thought to be around a half a dozen since the home was built.

A few other haunting tales involving the Plumer Street house include a young boy who is believed to have hung himself from a light cord in the front upstairs bedroom, but nobody knows exactly why an event so extreme as this took place. Adults have also been injured in the home, and one has lost their life while living in the haunted house that appears to have fallen under some sort of death curse. Neighbors remember the story of a couple from long ago who quarreled nightly until one night there was nothing but silence coming from the residence. It was later discovered that the man of the house had been murdered while he napped in the parlor.

Upon entering the Plumer Street home most people say that you cannot deny an unexplained chill that embodies your very being right down to the bone. Further investigation leads you to listen intently to the hallway walls and most of the bedroom walls upstairs. Faint cries, whining, scratching, whispering and what sounds like lullaby music permeates through the structure begging you to further delve into the mysterious sounds that keep your ears glued to the homes interior makeup. Noisy hidden walkways have been discovered throughout most of the house, but the attempt to silence the dark and sinister halls by the placement of thick insulated walls have only hidden their existence by sight, not sound.

The sound of small feet running through the home has kept many a resident of the Plumer Street house awake throughout the night due to no explanation other then the place is pure and simply haunted by children seeking an answer to their dilemma. A few people believe that the sound of small feet running through the house is that of a small boy that accidentally fell and broke his neck when he was sprinting for the outhouse during the winter. The legend has it that it was a blistery cold night with below zero temps, and the lad simply wasn't watching what he was doing and fell to his death. At the location of his untimely demise, a light switch has been seen swinging about with no explanation as to why other then it is the spirit of the boy trying to see his way clear to the door.

Location: Maxwell is located almost directly in the middle of the state of Nebraska, just off of Interstate 80 approximately 16 miles east of North Platte, Nebraska. The Plumer Street house is located in the heart of the town along the first part of the street nearest to Maxwell Road.

Sherri, great writing. Hearing babies scream would be so unnerving. This is definitely a scary house.
