It was created for the 1890 election from parts of the former Drummond-Arthabaska electoral district. Its final election was in 2008. It disappeared in the 2012 election and its successor electoral districts were Drummond–Bois-Francs and Johnson.[3]

The riding as well as the city of Drummondville were named in honor of former War of 1812 general Gordon Drummond.[4]
