Becoming Fort Greene

October 19, 2007

From the July 3, 1896 edition of the Brooklyn Daily Eagle:

The Society of Old Brooklynites met in the hall of records last night.  The principal business of the meeting was to indorse [sic] the movement of the Daughters of the Revolution to have the common council change the name of Washington park to Fort Greene.
