Herman F. Schmelzer was born in Leavenworth, Kansas, in 1866. His father had established an arms business in 1857 and Herman, when grown, joined the firm. The Schmelzer Arms Company moved to Kansas City in 1886 and expanded into sporting goods. Herman was vice-president and secretary of the company.
The home is now on the market. Someone had purchased it, gutted a lot of it and then was unable to complete the job. Below are pictures of it as it is today. A lot of original features remain.
