Dutch Colonial Brooklyn: An Intimate Glimpse

0 Comments on this event

Brooklyn Historical Society and the Brooklyn Museum join forces to explore the lives of Brooklyn’s founding families.

Kevin Stayton, the Museum’s Chief Curator, will discuss several rare items from the Brooklyn Museum Library’s Special Collections, including an 1812 diary written by Jane Schenck, an 1891 travel diary by William Edward Schenck, and a recent acquisition of an 1872 genealogy documenting the Schenck Family in Europe and America.

Examining handwritten recipe books, seventeenth-century Dutch bibles, and other rich materials from the Lefferts family papers, BHS Director of Public History Julie Golia will reveal how the collections of one Brooklyn family can teach us important lessons about Brooklyn’s agrarian past. 

Dutch Colonial Brooklyn: An Intimate Glimpse
Wednesday, April 8th
