Rumely Lofts History


Rumely Lofts has a long and rich history stretching all the way back to 1903.  Rumely Lofts was built originally as the Des Moines branch office of The Rumely Company, a large power farming equipment producer.  Later, and for the largest part of its life, it was the home of the Des Moines Drug Company.  Below you can read the registration of the building for the National Register of Historic Places, view photos of some of the original Rumely machines, and learn more about the history that will surround you in your new home!
