Singers Hill Synagogue
Built in 1856, it was designed by Yeoville Thomason. It replaced the Greek Revival, 1827 Severn Street Synagogue, which survives as a Masonic Hall, and was the fourth synagogue building to be erected in the city.
It features "a Norman-wheel window in a building design in red and yellow brick, which combined neo-classical, romanesque, and Italianate details, and used a classical basilica plan, with a central Bimah (reading desk)".
