A brief history of Smeltzer House

Smeltzer House is 100! This house that now graces one of Sherwood Park’s mature neighbourhoods was built for Maurice Smeltzer and his family back in 1920. Across the road and to the east of their homestead, the house was home to three generations of the Smeltzer family until it was sold in 1974. Strathcona County purchased the house and three-acre parcel in 1976. The smaller garage was built at about the same time as the house; the larger garage was built in the mid-1950s.
