Exhibits of local Jewish history organised by the Jewish Historical Society occupy the ground floor of this now-landmarked former synagogue—the oldest in Washington. Built in 1876 of red brick, the structure was adopted by the society in 1960; its sanctuary was restored in the 1970s, preserving the original ark, pine benches, and slender columns that support the women’s balcony.
