The building of the preserved stone synagogue from the end of the 19th century. used today by the fire department. The location of windows on the side facades testifies to its past: one row of large windows is replaced by two rows of smaller windows (behind the partition of the second floor there was the female part of the synagogue). There was a second synagogue nearby, a bank was built in its place.

At the beginning of the 20th century there were three synagogues, since most of the population of Dyatlovo were Jews. The third was located at the neighboring old cemetery (Pervomayskaya street area). Resident of Dyatlovo I.I. Belous recalls: “In 1938 I conducted a population census in Dyatlovo. In total, 5763 people lived here, including 1620 Christians, this means Catholics and Orthodox, the rest are Jews. "
