Description:

Founded in 1863, Brooklyn Historical Society is dedicated to celebrating and preserving the borough’s 400-year history. Located in the heart of historic Brooklyn Heights steps away from the Brooklyn Promenade, our 1881 building on Pierrepont Street is a national historic landmark and features timeless architectural details including stained glass windows, soaring ceilings and hand carved woodwork.

 

Recently renovated with state-of-the-art facilities, BHS Pierrepont offers one-of-a-kind space for your wedding ceremony, reception or engagement photo shoot. We can work with you to tailor a rental package custom-made for your event.

Venue notes

Rates depend on the season, day of the week, and how many spaces you rent. Please note that the 20% deposit of the venue fee is considered a tax-deductible donation.

Wedding rental rates range from $3.500-$10,000. These rates are for space rental only and do not include catering or outside furniture rentals. Use of the Fransioli Lobby and the outdoor patio is included with all room rental packages.

BHS is a BYOB venue and we do not charge a venue corkage fee, so you can purchase your own alcohol at cost to be served by your approved caterer. You can also bring in your own cake and dessert.
