The Brooklyn Historical Society, a repository of Gotham history since 1863, will unveil a newly renovated interior on October, 16, 2013. The project has been under way since spring 2012, and includes restoring the building's traditional arched entrance and creating a new first-floor and lower-level galleries, as well as installing a 200-seat event space. Among the inaugural exhibits are a celebration of the BHS's century-and-a-half legacy and a rare copy of the Emancipation Proclamation.
