“central location of the Battle of Brooklyn”
Located in a reconstructed 1699 Dutch farmhouse that was central to the Battle of Brooklyn, the Old Stone House is a museum and community resource that explores the American Revolution, colonial life and Brooklyn. Open to the public year-round, OSH features a historic interpretive center with a permanent exhibit about the Battle of Brooklyn. We also host original exhibits connected to Brooklyn’s past and present in our second floor Great Room. Located in the heart of Park Slope, the Old Stone House is a perfect place to experience Brooklyn’s past while enjoying one of its most vibrant public spaces. The Battle of Brooklyn exhibit, the public restrooms and the recreation spaces are all wheelchair accessible.
