The Plummer Building, part of the Mayo Clinic building, is named after physician, scientist, and engineer Dr. Henry S. Plummer, whose time covered Mayo?s formative years starting from 1900 until the year of his death, 1936. He had essential contributions to the early success and development of Mayo.

The building bearing his name began its construction in August 1926. Playing a key role in the building?s architectural design, Dr. Plummer answered the need for a design that allows medical specialists to work independently and as a team. In the interior, his compassionate spirit is reflected through carvings, rich shades of marbles, custom carpeting, hardwood panels, and beautiful moldings. Mythological and allegorical themes adorn the exterior through the carvings focusing on medicine, Minnesota, America, and Rochester on the two lower floors of the building.
