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 and housed in a magnificent landmark building designed by George Post and opened in 1881, today's BHS is a cultural hub for civic dialogue, thoughtful engagement and community outreach.
It is a memorable venue for evening weddings, ceremonies and cocktail receptions as well as corporate and photo and film shoots. The Othmer Library on the 2nd floor, an interior landmark, and Great Hall ballroom space on the 1st floor, provide the perfect setting for a wedding reception, sit-down luncheon or dinner and cocktail reception.
