Description 

"Characteristic of the late nineteenth century, this house style features steep gables, multiple stories, intricate woodwork, many porches and a third floor ballroom.

Canadian-born David Drummond came to Eau Claire in 1870 and established the Brooks and Drummond meat packing firm, Eau Claire Gas and Light company, a real estate company and later, the Pioneer Furniture Company. He conducted much of his business in the Drummond Block, a commercial and office building he erected in 1893 at Barstow and Wisconsin Streets."
