About The Landmark

Weeksville Heritage Center in Crown Heights, Brooklyn represents a community built by and for free African Americans in the 19th Century. Tours are available year-round, and we recommend learning about this extraordinary story and seeing the national landmark buildings that for years remained hidden away, waiting to be rediscovered.

In 2014, Weeksville opened a new 18,000 square-foot education and cultural arts building designed by Caples Jefferson Architects. The building features state-of-the-art exhibition, performance and educational facilities.
