Inventor of the Schmitter Passes Away

FedNuts aren't the only food at the ball park. The new Schmitter Stand had a long line all day.

Hugh McNally, inventor of the Schmitter sandwich, died of heart failure on September 11th. McNally was the owner of Chestnut Hill’s McNally’s Tavern for 42-years, taking over for his grandmother Rose, who opened the bar at the top of Germantown Avenue in 1921.

A mass of Christian Burial will be held at Our Mother of Consolation Church (9 East Chestnut Hill Avenue) on September 18th at 11 a.m. A Memorial Mass will be offered at St. Francis Church on Long Beach Island in New Jersey at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations in his memory may be sent to St. Joseph Villa, 110 W. Wissahickon Ave., Flourtown PA 19031.
