Drums was named after the Drums family who were instrumental in the area’s early years. In the late 1700s, George Drum, the son of Jacob Drum and Catharine Strauss, bought land in what would later become Drums and Conyngham. He also constructed the first hotel-tavern in Drums which still stands today. But is now a private residence. The original post office building also still remains, but is a business center. George’s sons and other family members owned vast acreage of land in Drums, Conyngham, and surrounding counties.
