|Description||Living room, Schweinfurth House.|
Looking to dining room- to the rear. Note the chandeliers - only gas fixtures in the photo. Now the room has the same fixtures - but with electric branches added.
Schweinfurth House was originally designed and built by Cleveland architect Charles F. Schweinfurth. The House is located on East 75th Street near Euclid Avenue. Originally designed for important clientele, it also served as Schweinfurth's personal residence from 1894 until his death in 1919. Designed in the Romanesque Revival style, the House includes unique personal elements and was unusual in its day because of its openness and flexibility. The House served as a funeral home until 1929. In 1970 it was acquired by Cleveland architect R. Van Petten and designer Dale H. Smith who have done extensive restoration to the home.
Schewinfurth House was entered in The National Register of Historic places by the National Park Service and in June of 1974 was designated as a Historical Architectural Landmark by the Cleveland Landmarks Commission.
