Measured Drawing of Touro Synagogue, Newport
Contributed by Library of Congress through Maine Historical Society
Measured drawing of Touro Synagogue, Congregation Jeshuat Israel, 85 Touro Street, Newport, Newport County, RI. Created after 1933. Architect was Peter Harrison.
Touro Synagogue is perhaps Peter Harrison's most successful building. Although it presents a most severe facade to the street, the interior treatment, including carved wooden furnishings and galleries, is a rich, sophisticated work characteristic of English and Continental design of the mid-18th century.
