If These Walls Could Talk


Uncover the secret history of your Brooklyn home or block!

Join us for a rare visit to our landmarked Othmer Library during closed hours for a special intensive morning workshop. Cecily Dyer, BHS Special Collections Librarian and Manager of Reference and Outreach, reveals insider methods for conducting house research, followed by a hands-on deep dive into the library’s collections of archival images, records, and documents. Following a lunch break, attendees are invited back to the library to continue their exploration.
