Name[edit]

Most mortifying name for an Executive Masion ever. 68.39.174.238 14:37, 1 January 2006 (UTC)

Origin/derivation of name would be welcome. User:HopsonRoad 22:41, 10 November 2012 (UTC)

Contradictory information[edit]

The article says is was built in both 1760 and 1835. Which is it? --JHP (talk) 03:29, 20 March 2008 (UTC)

According to the Drumthwacket Foundation it was 1835 and therefore I changed the date in the infobox. The infobox also claims its architects were "Gildersleeve,Raleigh C.; Langton,Donald W." but the above source indicates it was built "possibly using a design by architect Charles Steadman." Given that the original information is unsourced and contradictory, and the Foundation seems less than positive regarding its claim, I have removed the architect information for now. If a source is identified it can be restored. Accurizer (talk) 22:45, 5 November 2009 (UTC)

Error in first sentence[edit]

Contradicts this other Wikipedia article, which I am pretty sure is correct: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ohio_Governor%27s_Mansion 216.82.251.228 (talk) 23:30, 28 October 2010 (UTC)

Pronounciation[edit]

I assume that the stress is on the second syllable. I don't know how the syllables are divided: is the th in the first syllable, or the second?

In other words: is it drum-THWACK-et or drumth-WACK-et?
