1915 1

The Townsend Apartments are at 1029 Oak St. The brick building was built in 1915 with "semi-fireproof construction." 1 The units were constructed with Marshall and Stearns wall beds. At least some of the units still have the old beds, although they may no longer function due to settling of the floors.

The building is across the street from the Oakland Museum of California, and next to the "Anasani" sculpture.
