Drummond Historical Museum

Drummond Historical Museum

The museum staff enjoyed an interesting project in 2013 when they completed the Blymer Bell outdoor display located on the grounds of the Drummond Library and Historical Museum. The bell, which has journeyed from an early Drummond School and then to the Drummond Free Lutheran Church, is now enclosed in an attractive structure that emulates a steeple complete with benches and floral displays.

In 1975, a twenty-four by thirty-two foot addition was built on the back of the then existing library (now the building known as the Drummond Business Center).  On July 3, 1976 during Drummond's celebration of the country's Bicentennial, the Drummond Museum was dedicated in a program conducted by Gordon Sorenson. Mr. Sorenson became the museum's first curator and was known as the person who, through his hard work and perseverance, made the museum a reality, and a place to preserve the local history.  After Mr. Sorenson's death, Lawrence Gagner took over as curator and with a great deal of hard work, made the museum a centerpiece for Drummond, and a much visited tourist attraction.  Lawrence died April 25, 2007 at the age of 92 years. 

We are very proud of our new building opened in 2001, our excellent historical exhibits and our wildlife exhibit. We are also very proud of the support we receive from our members.  Please note: There is no admission charge at the museum - you do not have to be a member to tour the museum.   The Drummond Historical Museum is totally separate from the Town and is solely supported by museum membership fees, monetary donations, and memorials.   These monies provide the funds to update displays, establish documentation, computer equipment, office supplies and all other financial requirements of the museum.  Without your contributions and memberships, the Drummond Museum would not be as wonderful as it is - Thank you.  Also, a sincere Thank You to the Town of Drummond for the existing arrangements for the Drummond Historical Museum to be located in the Town Building with the Drummond Library.   Address, contact information, hours and membership information is at the bottom of this page.

All of the work done at the museum is done by volunteers and the Board Members are all volunteers.   We sure could use more volunteers and would enjoy having new ideas for exhibits.   Please note, you must be a member to be elected to office but you need not be a year round resident as we can conduct meetings via telephone and in several months, we do not hold meetings due to holidays.  Meetings are normally held the third Wednesday of the month at 10:00 am in the meeting room at the Drummond Library/Museum building.  Check the Community Events section of this website.  We owe a very grateful "Thank You" to Suzanne Widmar, Library Director, and to Gwen Samp, Library Aid, who so capably answer questions and assist visitors to the museum when a museum volunteer is not present. 
The total building is WI-FI Internet accessible - free. 

Please note: There is no admission charge at the museum.
