Upon its completion in 1916, Temple Beth El served as a place of worship for Helena’s large Jewish population. Due to declining membership, the temple was donated to the Delta Cultural Center in 2006 and renamed Beth El Heritage Hall. The building is a contributing structure to the Perry Street Historic District.
Previous sites featured are Estevan Hall, the Depot, the American Legion Hut, the Phillips County Courthouse, the Doughboy Statue, the Moore-Hornor House, the Helena Museum, and the Helena Bridge. All ornaments are available at the DCC.Read More
