Schueler Boulevard is a narrow private way on Beach Point paralleling the long axis of the old Royal Coachman motel, 929 Commercial Street. It is named for its developers, Reginald F. Schueler (1901-1976), and his wife, Dorothy B. P. Schueler (1900-1977), of Cranston, R.I. They started buying property in the 1940s on the largely empty lots that had been platted for H. F. Williamson’s East Harbor Beach project of 1915. The sand accretion has been so great in 100 years that Schueler Boulevard runs south of Garfield Street, which was at water’s edge when the community was planned.
The Schueler’s son, Winston (1924-1996), also lent his name to two Beach Point roads: Winston Avenue and Winston Court.
The cottage at No. 2 was purchased in 1976 by Capt. Kenneth R. Macara II, skipper of the Victory II, which sank on 1 May 1984, costing Macara his life. His house in town was at 72 Franklin Street. • Map • Assessor’s Online Database PDF ¶ Posted 2013-08-26
