The story of Kleinschmidt House.

Kleinschmidt House is located at 600 Harrison Street, Helena, Montana, which is west of the main area of the town known as the old money section.

Theodore H. Kleinschmidt came to St. Louis with the rest of his family from Prussia in 1843. They were coming to America to join their father; however, he passed away the day they left their native home. Theodore was raised by mother and stepfather in St. Louis, Missouri.

He enlisted in the Civil War and after the war headed west. He finally stopped in Helena, Montana and made the town his home. Here he aided in developing the city and was elected twice as the mayor of Helena.

Theodore married Mary M. Blattner in 1867. They had six children, one died during childhood.

Theodore had a desire to build a mansion that would of course show his wealth and success. In 1892, the home was complete and he and his family moved in which included his wife, Mary, and their six children. The youngest child died during childhood. Mary passed away in 1904.

The mansion was passed down to various family members until it was finally sold to outsiders. During the 1980’s, the current owners bought the mansion. When realtors would take prospective buyers to the mansion, they would explain they were two entities living here. As far as anyone can tell, Mary and her young son, still live in the mansion with the living. They do not harm anyone; just go about their normal day-to-day life living in the mansion they loved.
