Where was the old synagogue in Lebanon, Connecticut?

I know this is a long shot, and there’s a good chance no one on this sub has ever even heard of the town of Lebanon, CT, but I’m trying absolutely every avenue I can think of to figure out where this synagogue was.

A friend of mine told me that according to his grandmother, who passed away a few years ago, there used to be a synagogue in our town. She didn’t remember where it was, what happened to it, or any other details whatsoever. I tried to search for it online, but the only two things I could find were Wikipedia’s history page of my town, mentioning that there was a synagogue at one time in the town but that it was closed due to declining attendance. I also found an old newspaper article (from 1955) about the cornerstone being laid in a celebratory ceremony.

I have absolutely no idea how to find and learn anything else about it, although I really really want to. I know this might not be the right place to post this, but I’m lost. Any ideas and any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
