Corsicana: Temple Beth-El

Temple Beth-El

Mercantile Jews, primarily from Germany, moved to Corsicana during the oil boom and  constructed an unusual synagogue in 1898. Now a community meeting hall, Temple Beth-El features two onion-dome towers and remains a rare example of Moorish Revival architecture in Texas.
