Brooklyn Historical Society


The Brooklyn Historical Society provides research resources, primary source documents, exhibition and presentation space, and staff guidance designed to help students contextualize their studies in the larger community. BHS helps students consider the relationship of past, present and future, across the borough and across disciplines. Students will come to associate historical movements, world religions, arts, culture, scientific discoveries and innovations with “living” places in Brooklyn. They will develop a scholarly impulse to piece together their surroundings and to connect their community to its larger context.
