History / Biographical
The Jewish Synagogue in Yarmouth is a wooden structure built for the Free Baptist Church in the cemetery at Arcadia. After a considerable period it was removed to Yarmouth and enlarged and improved, served the Free Baptists of the town until 1905, when, the United Baptist Church having been formed, it fell into disuse. In 1906, the Jewish community organized their Agudath Achim Society and in 1910, established their Synagogue in this former free Baptist Church.
The Nova Scotia photos were given to Mrs. Esther Blaustein by Doris Phillips with notes. Which she donated them to the Archives in May 2003.
