Brooklyn Historical Society


Housed in an 1881 landmark building in Brooklyn Heights, the Brooklyn Historical Society (BHS) provides several ideal settings for weddings, ceremonies, cocktail receptions, and corporate and other special events. BHS also offers a unique backdrop for professional photo and film shoots. Elegant columns and soaring ceilings are the focus of BHS' striking first floor space, which provide the perfect setting for a wedding reception, sit-down luncheon, or a dinner and cocktail reception. BHS also offers its Othmer Library, a New York City interior landmark, as a spectacular venue to host an intimate ceremony, dinner, or cocktail party.
