Location of Schuler Alberta

Schuler is a hamlet in southern Alberta, Canada within Cypress County,[1] located 4 kilometres (2.5 mi) east of Highway 41, approximately 40 kilometres (25 mi) northeast of Medicine Hat.


As a designated place in the 2011 Census, Schuler had a population of 63 living in 33 of its 44 total dwellings, a -22.2% change from its 2006 population of 81. With a land area of 0.57 km2 (0.22 sq mi), it had a population density of 110.5/km2 (286/sq mi) in 2011.[2]


The settlement was named after Norman Banks Schuler, who settled a homestead in the area in the spring of 1910. In the fall of that year he was given the Post Office for the district. The hamlet itself acts as a service centre for people on the surrounding farms. Grain elevators were built by the Alberta Wheat Pool in 1924 and 1928 and by the Pioneer Grain Company in 1928. In July 1997, the last train hauled grain from the two remaining elevators. It is home to an ECS to Grade 9 school.
