Virtual Lecture Series

2021 Virtual Lecture Series Brings Renowned Speakers to Living Rooms Near and Far

The Three Village Historical Society lecture series hosts prominent and emerging historians, authors, genealogists, archeologists and storytellers from around the nation and presents topics related to local history, heritage conservation, social justice, art history, and more.  For decades, TVHS public programming has provided a stimulating environment for the exploration of history and ideas that permeate the culture and community of the Three Village area, and beyond.

In early 2020, when the world went on “lock-down”, TVHS shifted gears and began hosting this treasured event virtually via Zoom on a monthly basis and the Society will continue to do so for 2021. Unless otherwise noted, all lectures begin at 7:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time and will be held on Zoom and moderated by Mari Irizarry, TVHS Creative Services Director.  The Virtual Lecture Series is open to public, with a $5 general admission suggested donation and is free for TVHS members, though registration is required.

Building the Brooklyn Bridge, 1869-1883: An Illustrated History with Images in 3D

Monday, November 15th, 2021 - 7pm

Jeff Richman has been the full time historian at Brooklyn's Green-Wood Cemetery since 2007. He is a great fan of everything Brooklyn, including the Brooklyn Bridge. His fifth and latest book, Building the Brooklyn Bridge, 1869-1883: An Illustrated History with Images in 3D, has just been published. It features 250 photographs, woodcuts, and original drawings of the bridge, many of which have never before appeared on the printed page, including 44 3D anaglyphs of the bridge as it was being built. Join Jeff for a slideshow about how the Brooklyn Bridge came into being, its human drama, and what makes it so special. This is an opportunity for you to better understand the origins of this New York City, American, and international icon that has become the most-recognizable symbol of New York City--the Brooklyn Bridge.
