This event is part of Archtober’s virtual Building of the Day program series. Join us for a virtual tour of the Weeksville Heritage Center.
Weeksville Heritage Center is a multidisciplinary museum dedicated to preserving the history of the 19th century African American community of Weeksville, Brooklyn – one of America’s many free black communities. The primary purpose of the new structure and landscape is to serve as a gateway to the historic houses on the premises—remnants of the 19th-century free African American community of Weeksville—with state-of-the-art exhibition, performance, and educational facilities, as well as to provide a green oasis for visitors and the local community.
