Henry Muma 1822-1902
"Squire" Muma, farmer, land agent, and entrepreneur, was born in Brant County and reportedly came to Blenheim Township in the 1840's. In 1851 he purchased land here and laid out a village plot known as Muma's Corners. In 1854 a Post Office named Drumbo was opened and three years later, shortly after the Buffalo and Lake Huron Railroad, the population numbered some 200. Muma early erected a sawmill and for several years, beginning about 1874, he and his son Charles operated a brickmaking business on his farm. A long serving J.P., reeve and councillor, Muma also accepted various federal appointments. He erected this building, known as the Muma Block, in 1890.
