1. Beth Israel Synagague Marker
In 1876, the Woodville Hebrew Education Association constructed a small frame synagogue on this site that later became the Beth Israel Congregation. Emanuel Rosenfelder served as the first rabbi. After a fire in 1896, the synagogue was reconstructed in a similar style. With the congregation dwindling after economic declines in the mid-1920s, the synagogue was sold and later moved to Main Street and used as a theatre. The building burned in the 1930s.
Erected 2016 by Mississippi Department of Archives and History.
