Description:

Founded in 1863, Brooklyn Historical Society is a nationally recognized urban history center dedicated to preserving and encouraging the study of Brooklyn's extraordinary 400-year history. Located in Brooklyn Heights, the magnificent landmark building designed by George Post in 1881 is a unique venue for any special event. BHS’s masonry of unglazed terra cotta and repressed brick was the first building in New York City to use locally produced terra cotta. The facade was sculpted by Olin Levi Warner and is adorned with heroic busts of figures from history. Decorations throughout the building include Minton tile floors, custom made bronze hardware, and elaborately carved black ash woodwork in the library. The newly renovated Great Hall is a perfect setting for your reception with its soaring ceilings and tall columns. Enjoy cocktail hour in the beautiful Othmer Library, which features original black ash woodwork on the hand-carved wooden Corinthian columns, expansive bookshelves, as well as stained glass bay window lunettes. The Brooklyn Historical Society brings an abundance of history together with a touch of modern class -- a truly unforgettable location to share this special day with your loved ones.
