Plumb Elementary School is named after the Plumb family.
The Plumb House, now known as the Historic Plumb House Museum, houses period furnishings, vintage photographic collections, artifacts and many documents and items of historical significance, including yearbooks from Clearwater High School and uniforms and pictures of the Clearwater Bombers, the 10-time World Champion Softball Team.
