Brooklyn Historical Society

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.
