Brooklyn Historical Society
Brooklyn Historical Society is at a magical crossroads, where history meets the future.
2013 is our 150th anniversary, and we are pleased to mark the occasion with a myriad of exciting programs and exhibitions, all of which will take place in newly renovated spaces that were designed by award winning architects, Christoff: Finio.
Come hear Pulitzer Prize winning historian, Eric Foner talk about The Emancipation Proclamation. View new exhibits, including The Emancipation Proclamation; Landmarks of New York; Brooklyn Abolitionists/In Pursuit of Freedom; and Documenting Sandy - Photos from the Storm.
Here in Brooklyn, there is a story around every corner. We are here to tell them all.
