The Story of Schlemmer's Fire & Outdoor

From that old wood stove in grandpa’s workshop to the new stone fireplace in a neighbor’s family room, Indiana residents have looked to Schlemmer Brothers for the beauty and warmth of flame for generations.

A Wabash fixture for 5 generations

With a history as warm and unique as the products they sell, Schlemmer's has been a part of the Wabash community for over 110 years, spanning 5 generations of family ownership. Started in 1903 as an implement, harness and buggy business by John Schlemmer, he was soon joined by brothers Jacob, Clarence and George, making it a true family business.

Throughout the years, other family members bought in (Byron and Sam in 1945, Jon in 1973) and a vast selection of products were added, including hardware, washers, dryers, refrigerators and, eventually the wood stoves and fireplaces for which they’re known today. Through it all, they’ve maintained their well-deserved reputation for excellent craftsmanship, quality products and great customer service.
