Village of Drummond

Village of DrummondThe Village of Drummond is situated at one side of Wisconsin Avenue in Chevy Chase, Montgomery County, Maryland. It is a 12-minute walk from the D.C. border and Friendship Heights, and approximately 20 minutes from Bethesda. This, the smallest township in Montgomery, was founded in 1916 and classified as a self-governing, special tax district.

If you plan to travel around Drummond and Chevy Chase from the airport, the best option is to call Affinity Airport Sedan. Our efficient and trustworthy chauffeurs will be very happy to give you a ride.

About Drummond Village

Drummond got its name from a general in the U.S. Army (Richard C. Drum), who moved to this area from Washington D.C. in 1880. The General constructed a 20-room residential structure described as Langdrum, which was unfortunately razed by fire in 1901. He sold lots along Drummond Avenue to construct a smaller home in 1903 between Langdrum and Hunt Avenues.

The village is small, occupying only two-thirds of a single street with 43 residences. Nonetheless, Drummond is among the oldest municipalities in the county. It is governed by a three-man council comprising the mayor, secretary, and treasurer. Drummond is more of an old-world portion of Chevy Chase town and is made up mostly of housing units. The entry within the vicinity of Wisconsin Avenue is highlighted by two unique columns made of stone with light fixtures on top.

Pride of Residents

Locals manifest a high degree of pride for their village. Indeed, it is a very solid neighborhood. Drummond Avenue looks much like a boulevard, even if the street is quite narrow. The pavements are lined with old trees and fodders of green grass that extend from the center to the walkways on both sides. Some homes are ordinary bungalows, while others are majestic Victorian-style abodes.
