Freed House, Trenton

Few Victorian houses in West Tennessee speak more strongly to their time and place than the Julius Freed House in Trenton.

Listed in the National Register, the house documents the impact of Jewish merchants in the post Civil War South. It even served as a synagogue for the tiny Jewish community in the region.

The house needs our help–repairs are needed at several places–but it needs our embrace more. It is often forgotten or neglected but it really is a jewel.
