HOMINY — On Saturday, June 22, the Drummond Home, located at 305 N. Price Ave. in Hominy, will hold its annual ice cream social at the home from 1-4 p.m. As a special treat this year, Chuck “Pa-Pa” Drummond, the father-in-law of Pioneer Woman Ree Drummond, will be on-hand to tell stories and visit with the guests about the Drummond family and its history in the area. There will be tours of the home. Ice cream, cookies and punch will be served.
The Drummond Home in Hominy is also happy to announce that the annual Drummond heirloom exhibit began June 1 and will last the entire month. This is a display of artifacts usually kept in storage for most of the year and includes women’s fashions, military and Mason items, quilts, children’s clothing, sad irons and even the Drummond family kilt, which belonged to Frederick Drummond. This exhibit interprets what family life was like during the early 1900s and is of historical interest for all ages.

Admission is $7 for adults, $5 for seniors 62 years of age and older, $4 for students 6 to 17 years of age, and free for all veterans and active military with ID.
