There might be a date in the triangle but I cant read it. The arch seems to have roses and serpents in it?

Roses are likely. Serpents aren't.

[edit] A certain type of vine is likely though.

[further edit]There is likely to be a date in the keystone, and it is likely to read 1861.

Yes, they are heavy.

No it is not a museum, nor is it a college building (on campus or otherwise).

Looks like the synagogue to me, but the strange thing is that there is no Hebrew inscriptions.

Sigh. My dislexia at work. I see one thing and type another. It should be 1869, not 1861. In any case, most buildings have the start date engraved, not the completion date. So, no, it is not on that list.
