Drouwenermond is a peat colonial village in the municipality of Borger-Odoorn with about 600 inhabitants. Drouwenermond is one of the Drentse Mounds. The ribbon village is located on the same canal which was dug for drainage of the peat and transport of peat to the city of Groningen via the Stadskanaal. The mouth (channel) itself is muted to a large extent. It is one of the smaller mouths and it is located at right angles to the Stadskanaal between Nieuw-Buinen and Gasselternijveenschemond.
Large-scale mining of the area took place in the 19th century. The drainage of peat was possible through districts and depths to the newly dugged city canal. The Drouwender Veenmaatschappij was established for the mining of the area, in which several former Drentse directors participated. One of them, Gerrit Kniphorst, brought workers from the Zeeland Westkapelle to work in the Drouwener venen. They were housed in the Zeeland district in Drouwenermond, near Stadskanaal. The highlight of the mining was between 1850 and 1880.
The churches of Drouwenermond, Buinerveen and Nieuw-Buinen were merged in 2005 to Protestant Gemeente Nieuw-Buinen, Buinerveen and Drouwenermond. The church building of this municipality is located in Nieuw-Buinen. The reformed Drouwenermond church building dating back to 1920 was demolished in 2010 after it failed to find a buyer. The objection to the demolition of the Oude Drentse Kerken foundation came too late.
A famous event in Drouwenermond is the Boerenrock Festival that takes place annually. Nearby is also Drouwenerzand Amusement Park.
