Drummond was just west of the Brazos River and three miles southwest of the site of present Newcastle in west central Young County. The settlement evolved in the late nineteenth century across the river from the now-abandoned Belknap community and was named after the pioneer Drummond family, who owned a 5,000-acre local ranch. A post office was established in Drummond in 1895 with Virgil E. Curtis as postmaster; mail service was moved to Graham in 1909.
