The possible fusing of the venerable and private Brooklyn Historical Society with the Brooklyn Public Library was announced this winter and now the entities have merged to create the new Center for Brooklyn History.
The center will be located at the historic society’s treasured 1881 Brooklyn Heights headquarters at 128 Pierrepont Street, according to today’s press release. The center will begin offering new virtual programs and digital resources this fall. Staff from both organizations will begin moving into the Pierrepont Street building for a planned 2021 reopening.
