The house (which is currently a reconstructed version of the original) played an important role in the 1776 Battle of Brooklyn, and even later served as the clubhouse for the Brooklyn Dodgers.
Woman Getting Married Says:
I love the idea of getting married at such an historical venue that’s smack dab in the middle of Brooklyn. And considering you’re in one of the most expensive wedding cities in the country, this is a great deal that is perfect for couples on a tight budget. For larger groups the bathrooms are going to be a bit of a bummer at this venue (think park restrooms), but overall I think the space is flexible and can be dressed up in a fun/whimsical way. Also for larger groups I think this venue would be better for a heavy snacks/appetizers/drinks vs. a sit-down dinner. However, a plated meal could be perfect for a guest list 50 or under (which would also eliminate the bathroom situation).
