This house was built in 1907 for Wilkie and Rhoda Waggoner Drake. Upon graduating from medical school in 1902, Wilkie Drake (1875-1963) practiced near Detroit and then came to Breckenridge to begin a career that lasted nearly sixty years. After the doctor's death in 1963 the house passed to the Drake's daughter, naturalist and author (Mary) Margaret Drake Elliott (1904-1999) of Muskegon. Upon her death, Elliott bequeathed the house and its contents fo the Breckenridge/Wheeler Area Historical Society.
