Built by Wheeling brewer and businessman, Henry Schmulbach, Mozart Park opened October 25, 1893. The park's attractions included a dancing pavilion with a capacity of 5,000 people, a casino, a bowling alley, a restaurant building, an outdoor stage, and a one-third mile long bicycle track.
The original site for Mozart Park was the Frazier farm, purchased from the John Frazier in 1892 for $13,000. Otto Kalkrueth was hired to design the park. 
Schmulbach, in addition to being a brewer, also had stock in the streetcar business and built an inclined railway to reach the hilltop park. Schmulbach engaged a company from Pittsburgh to build the inclined railway to the tune of $100,000. [ibid] The incline, the base of which was located at 43rd and Wetzel Streets, became a major attraction, reportedly carrying as many as 1,200 passengers an hour.  The incline remained in use until 1907 when the Mozart Street Car Line reached the park.
The park closed sometime between 1917 and 1918.
