A permanent exhibit exploring the Battle of Brooklyn and the Occupation, 1776-1783

Old Stone House: Witness to War is a self-directed exhibit that takes visitors on a journey through the Revolutionary Era in Brooklyn from 1776 until 1783. Ten themed areas allow visitors to explore this history and consider how war impacted the community, what choices citizens had to make at the time, battle strategies, and what makes these issues relevant in today’s world.
