Beth Israel Synagogue Historical Museum
Synagogue/Museum with rotating displays. It was constructed in 1905. Beginning in the 1960s, the Jewish community began to dwindle as older members passed away or moved away in retirement and their children found their livelihood elsewhere. In 2007, Temple Beth Israel was listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It is the third oldest synagogue building in the State of Wisconsin and the oldest synagogue with its sanctuary intact. It currently houses a permanent exhibit about Jewish religious practices and the history of the Stevens Point Jewish Community.
