His brother Julius Schweinfurth was also an architect and they did some projects as a partnership. Schweinfurth moved to Cleveland to design Sylvester T. Everett’s Euclid Avenue mansion. It would be the first of at least 15 he designed on 'Millionaire's Row' by 1910. The 23-room mansion Schweinfurth designed for Samuel Mather in Bratenahl, Ohio was built in 1890 is now the Shoreby Club. Schweinfurth was also responsible for the designs of remodels at the Old Stone Church, Calvary Presbyterian Church, and Trinity Cathedral and Parish House. He was also the architect for four 'landmark' stone bridges crossing Martin Luther King Boulevard, his own residence on East 75th Street, declared a Historical Architectural Landmark in 1974 by the Cleveland Landmarks Commission. Several works by Charles and/or Julius Schweinfurth survive and are listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places.
