Add to Itinerary

Founded in 1863 as the Long Island Historical Society, the Brooklyn Historical Society is dedicated to preserving, interpreting, and sharing Kings County's rich history. Housed in a 1880s Queen Anne style building with fine terra cotta detail, the society maintains the most comprehensive collection of Brooklyn-related material in existence. On and off site exhibits highlight a wide range of topics covering the borough's social and cultural history, and its educational programs reach thousands of students each year.
