History

Front exterior at Gebhart-Schmidt-Parramore Funeral HomeGebhart-Schmidt-Parramore Funeral Home at 508 East Linden Ave. is considered an excellent example of a Victorian mansion. The home was built by the William Gamble family from 1893-1894. The land was purchased from Agusta Heidrich and originally 3 residential lots. Heidrich had already laid the foundation for a home on the property when he sold the land.

Original architectural features

The Gamble home, while it seems very lavish by today's standards, was considered understated for its time. It has many of the typical Queen Anne architectural details, including bay windows, or oriels, located both on the front and side of the home. There were once porches across the entire front of the home, as was customary for the time—1 circular with a veranda and another columned with a portico.

The home also featured a conservatory, common for growing vegetables and herbs indoors during inclement weather. Beautiful and ornate examples of both stained glass and beveled windows highlighted the residence and made it sparkle. Additionally, the outside of the home included a grand square tower at the northwest corner, a polygonal bay on the northeast and a patterned slate roof with ornamentation crowned by 3 chimneys.

Early beginnings and our continued commitment today

Howard G. Gebhart and Elwood Schmidt bought a funeral business, and the original building at 57 South Main Street from Mrs. Herbert Apple in 1925. In 1930, Gebhart and Schmidt moved the location of the business to 16 North Main Street.

Today, the current funeral home team is dedicated to continuing this legacy of family, service and community, which began so many decades ago. We are a part of a long-standing tradition. It is our privilege to preserve this historical building and share its unique heritage with the community.
