Draughon Business College Open In Comanche

It continues to amaze me how these little Central Texas towns were once so full of activity of all sorts. For instance, did you have any idea that in 1912 the Draughon Business College opened in Comanche?

The college was located in the building that most of us know as the old Owl Drug building, where today Jill Beaty has her Southern Pride restaurant. Subjects taught at the college were bookkeeping, shorthand, and general business:  banking and commercial instructions.

About Fredda Jones

Fredda Davis Jones was raised “in the country” in Comanche County and learned very early that creativity and innovation are traits that can flourish even in small-town Texas and that with enough effort, indeed nothing is impossible, including being married to the same man for over 40 years! Rickey and Fredda have 2 children, 5 grandchildren, and a crazy life that includes sitting in the bleachers several times a week. The rest of her time is spent creating great content for texansunited.com and marketing small-town Texas.
