Photos show the house located at 120 Chestnut Street on the west side of the street near Park Avenue. The English Cottage Style house was built between 1915 and 1920. It has a stucco exterior and green tile roof. The site was originally occupied by a Shingle Style house which was moved nearby to 18 Park Avenue and is still extant. This structure was built as a private home, and was the residence of Congressman Harry I. Thayer in 1923. It has been used as a house of worship for the Temple Emmanuel congregation since 1951, when the house was purchased from the Yuell family estate. Extensive renovations were done on the house, and the new sanctuary was dedicated in 1952. The building stands at the entrance to the Wakefield Park neighborhood, the development of which began in 1886. The area was promoted as having a healthful and beautiful environment, with elegant homes and building restrictions.
