George and Gladys Scheidemantel House is a historic home located at East Aurora in Erie County, New York. It is a locally distinctive example of the Arts and Crafts movement style of architecture built in 1910. It is a two story, frame, bungalow that combines elements of the American Foursquare and Craftsman styles. George Scheidemantel was for a time head of the Roycroft Leather Shop and the house designer, William Roth, was head Roycroft carpenter.

The house now serves as The Elbert Hubbard Roycroft Museum.[2] The museum features furniture and decorative items produced by the Roycroft community.

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1993.[1]
