—Sesquicentennial —

This site was purchased by the organizers of what is today Congregation B'Nai Israel, one of the oldest Reform Jewish congregations in America. The earliest records of the congregation date to 1858. The original charter stated the Congregation's purpose as "the cherishing, preserving and perpetuating the principals of Judaism and the cultivation and spread of enlightened religious sentiment." The congregation worshiped here until 1954, when it moved to a new synagogue.
