Last week's question was "What Is This Building?" and there were no guesses. It is the synagogue in Ellington and it was built in 1913.

According to Images of America: Ellington, from the Ellington Historical Society:

"The synagogue pictured here was built in 1913 on the southeast corner of Abbott and Middle roads on land donated by Julius and Molly Sugarman. It was moved to its present site and renovated at 236 Pinney Street in 1954. The land was donated by Eva and Calmun Myerowitz. Congregation Knesseth Israel had its origins in the Connecticut Jewish Farmers Association, which was organized in 1905. Loans granted by the Jewish Agricultural Society to European immigrants enabled them to buy land and farm in Ellington. Before the synagogue was built, the farmers met in the homes of Aaron Dobkin, Samuel Rosenberg, and Louis Franklin for Sabbath services."
