Tourist in Your Own Town Explores Park Slope's Landmarked Old Stone House

The Old Stone House is a reconstruction of the original Vechte-Cortelyou House built in 1933 and located within the small Washington Park in Park Slope.

Today the Old Stone House serves as a historic interpretive center with a permanent exhibit about the Battle of Brooklyn as well as other exhibits connected to Brooklyn’s past and present. It also serves as an event space hosting local theater groups, concerts, and more. In addition there are lovely gardens reflecting plants of the era.

The video is produced by the New York Landmarks Conservancy’s Tourist in Your Own Town series that explores some of New York’s best hidden gems as well as some of the classic iconic landmarks.
