DESCRIPTION

In the State of Minnesota and in Hennepin County, the area called Brooklyn Township was created in 1858.

Over a century later, the City of Brooklyn Center and the City of Brooklyn Park now represent most of the original township area.

The Brooklyn Historical Society works to preserve information on the full township and is a volunteer and 501(c, 3) non-profit organization.

The office / archives of BHS is moving to the Community Activity Center in Brooklyn Park so our address and other details are in the process of changing.

In Brooklyn Center, you can visit the Earle Brown Heritage Center, operated by the City as a convention center and more.  The site is north of Brookdale Shopping Center.  The Earle Brown Farm was the home of a man who'd been a County Sheriff and Businessman who later donated his property to the University of Minnesota.

Brooklyn Historical Society provides support for the history aspect of the farm but the facility is either city buildings or industrial & commercial properties.

In Brooklyn Park, you can visit the Eidem Homestead, a Historical Farm that looks much like it did in the 1890-1910 era.  The site is north of 610 on Noble Parkway.  The property features the Eidem family home, a classic barn and other farm buildings on about 10 acres, a part of the farm that was originally 120+ acres.

Brooklyn Historical Society provides support for the history aspect of the farm but the facility is operated by the Brooklyn Park Recreation and Parks Department.

The Brooklyn Historical Society has offices and archival storage space in the Peace Building on the west side of the Brookdale Mall, just off Highway 100.  Artifacts, landowner maps, photographs, memorabilia and more is stored there in what is becoming a growing collection.  We're not able to provide regular hours yet but you're welcome to call for an arranged tour.
