Their factories were located at Clybourn Street in Chicago. In 1891, Barnes joined the firm and it became incorporated as Smith & Barnes Piano Company. In 1906, the Strohber joined with Smith & Barnes forming the Smith, Barnes & Strohber Piano Company, and the firm manufactured pianos under the names of Smith & Barnes, Strohber, Hoffman, Lessing & Willard.
