Kuchler Row
608-614 10th Street
Built 1872-1873

This row of residential units, designed in the Greek Revival and Italianate styles, was built to provide inexpensive family housing near the centers of government and commerce. A notable design feature is the Delta Style with the main living space above ground level for protection from floods.

These buildings are the earliest documented appearance in Sacramento of the concept of an "apartment building" as we know it today. While it is likely that other apartment buildings like Kuchler Row may have been built in Sacramento, none exist today.

These buildings are located in the Alkalai Flat neighborhood.
