Stahlman’s Plumbing & Heating
14932 Route 68
In the early 1940s, J. W. McDowell, was traveling to Pittsburgh regularly for farm supplies and bringing back plumbing supplies. He soon opened McDowell Plumbing and Heating, Co. at our current location. In 1967, Carl W. Stahlman purchased the property and the company from Jim, and continued doing business under the aforementioned name. In 1988, Carl and his wife Bonnie, wanted to pass the company down to their three sons, and incorporated, thus changing the name at that point to Stahlman Plumbing and Heating, Inc.
