It is now on private property and you must have permission to enter. Most likely you will not be able to go onto the land. The land owner is very harsh, and even demolished most of the remains of the town and buried them!!!
REMAINS: A grave yard and some bricks! UPDATE:
While I haven't personally seen it, I was told by a person of good authority that the roads leading to Plemons have been blocked and have No Trespassing signs and what had remained of the town has been bulldozed level. He said that nothing remains of the town.
Not much know about this town, except it was located North East of Borger, Texas on the Canadian River. Submitted by: Pete
I could tell you about Plemons Texas just like any high school student in Borger.I graduated in 93 we all have made the trip....The graveyard consist of a lot of Baby graves lots of twins in fact...it is rumored the town had one of the few north american outbreaks of the plage.Our brothers and sisters swear there was a time when if you went to Plemons a crazy old man livivng in the brick home there would shoot at you.That the ranchers there had a retarded son they could not control so he was put in his own house "the brick house" and given an overseer"the crazy old man of later years"left with nothing to do when the son passed away.The graveyard is truly a haunty site set with a huge platu wall as a back drop it is awe inspiring espesialy in a Panhandle thunder storm which is when I got to see it... It is rumored the infamouse Tex Watson is from here and I do know for a fact that at some time his name did show up on Borger High roll sheets......This is a haunted area Submitted by: Joanna Burton-Duncan
Having lived 5 miles from Old Plemons Texas most of my life, I am familiar
with it. Up until about 5 years ago, the remains of the Plemons townsite
consisted of the old jail building, the school, two houses, and the graveyard.
When the current landowner took over, he had the schoolhouse and the
jail building bulldozed. I am not sure if the two houses remain although
they are unoccupied if still standing. The small brick house was used
by the Whittenburg family, who were the previous landowners. The other
house I believe was occupied by a Whittenburg employee who was caretaker
of the site and has since passed away. The graveyard is still there.
It is a small gravesite with a wire fence around it. There are probably
25 graves there, including children who had died in some sort of epidemic
around 1912. The townsite is not accessible at present. It is on private
property and the current owner is a jerk (as was noted by a previous
submission). The loss of this town is a shame considering its history.
It was the county seat at one time. The most famous resident was Billy
Dixon of Adobe Walls fame. I believe that he was Sheriff of Hutchinson
County at one time. The town was also a crossing point for the Canadian
River. The town of Plemons has gone the way of many other old towns.
Because no one cared enough about its significance and history, it is
now just a faded memory.
I was reading the story about Plemons Tx, and baby graves..
