Schuler Apartment Building
38 North Oakdale Avenue
Built 1926

The Schuler Apartment Building was probably designed as well as constructed by local builder Richard Schuler. It was the first and most prominent apartment building in Medford to employ the stylistic conventions of period architecture.

The concrete structure is Mission Revival with Spanish Colonial Revival details. The boxy outline of the structure is enhanced by typical Mission features: curvilinear gables at the parapets and red Spanish tiles on both the parapet and the pent roofs over the front window bays. The heavy stucco texturing of the exterior walls evokes the adobe construction of California Missions.

The Schuler Apartment Building is the largest, best designed and best preserved Medford apartment building from the early modern architectural period.
