Schott Building

The Schott Building at 935-937 University Av. is a prime example of a well-preserved University Avenue storefront. The building, which currently houses a secondhand store, has been home to many different types of retail businesses over the years. It contains dwelling units on its second floor. This was typical of many early businesses, where the owner and his or her family lived upstairs about the building.

The brick building dates from 1890. It was honored by the UNITED organization in 2002. Owner Gilbert Marty’s efforts to restore the façade were recognized.
