Berea Temple of Seventh Day Adventists
In 1845, the congregation erected its first synagogue—the oldest in Maryland –on Lloyd Street. It still stands as a historic site. The steady influx of Jewish immigrants and the movement of the Jewish community away from East Baltimore led to the construction of this synagogue in 1891. Known as the Madison Avenue Temple, it was designed by Charles L. Carson.
The Berea Temple of Seventh Day Adventists purchased the Madison Avenue Temple in 1951, when the Baltimore Hebrew Congregation moved to 7401 Park Heights Avenue.
Erected by The Rouse Company Sponsor, William Donald Schaefer, Mayor.
