Fred Drummond Home [OK]

The Drummond family built one of the most successful trading and ranching operations in Oklahoma. Twenty-year-old Frederick Drummond arrived in the United States from his native Scotland in 1884. In 1890, Drummond married Adeline Gentner, a German-American girl from Coffeyville, Kansas. By 1895 the couple had saved enough money for Fred to buy a partnership in the company he worked for. The enterprise prospered and, in 1904, Drummond bought out a trader in Hominy, forming the Hominy Trading Company. Through this economic base, Drummond expanded his operations to include ranching, banking, and real estate. As a reflection of financial success, Fred and Addie built a substantial home in Hominy. The three-story house, completed in 1905, is Victorian in style and features a central square tower, second floor balcony, and false dormers.

The home offers tours.
