UPCOMING EVENTS
The Bay Ridge Historical Society meets on the third Wednesdays of most months, with breaks in the summer and winter.
All events are free and open to the public.

The Historical Society’s public lecture series is on indefinite hiatus due to the public health crisis. We hope to reschedule our Spring 2020 speakers, and we will post more information when it becomes available.
