The Sam Azeez Museum of Woodbine Heritage is between Clay and Franklin sts. at 610 Washington Ave. The 1896 Woodbine Brotherhood Synagogue, one of the state's oldest, houses this museum, which displays more than 2,000 cultural and historical artifacts that help preserve Woodbine's heritage.
Exhibits include a timeline tracing local history back to 1880; the story of Baron Maurice de Hirsch, a philanthropist who facilitated the town's founding by Russian-Jewish immigrants; and documents and historical photographs relating the area's agricultural history and emphasis on diversity, education and tolerance.
