Notes
Survey number HABS IL-1054
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (FN-121).
Building/structure dates: 1890 initial construction
Significance: One of the few example of ecclesiastical architecture to come from the office of Adler and Sullivan, this Chicago synagogue of 1890-91 was originally intended to be far more elegant and monumental. The exterior of the building is of heavy rusticated stone, while the interior displays a profusion of Sullivan ornament.
