Old Marshall School


  • Marshall School is the oldest school in Sacramento, built in 1903
  • Designed by architect Rudolf Herold (who also designed old City Hall)
  • Listed as a historic building with the City of Sacramento, architectural style is American Classical Revival
  • Served as an elementary school with SCUSD until 1976, closed due to lack of building code standards
  • Renovated by SCUSD in 1983, reopened as an Adult Education Center until 2009
  • Last used briefly as a Montessori School from July-November 2009

Current Reality

  • Boarded up windows, peeling paint, dryrot--poised to be a blight on our neighborhood
  • A dysfunctional school district unable to follow-through on thier own process to sell the building to a motivated developer with a good plan
  • A historic gem of Sacramento falling victim to demolition by neglect.
