From 1895 until 1940, this building served as the religious center for the Jews of Hurley and surrounding communities. This plaque is presented on July 24, 2005 by the Iron County Historical Society to remember the Jewish community of the Gogebic Range. Those attending the ceremony of this day are thankful for the welcoming environment their ancestors found in Hurley.
The marker is located on the northwest corner of the T-intersection of Division Street and 4th Avenue North, at or near 400 Division Street, Hurley, Wisconsin 54534.
