Add your events in a few simple steps


(1) Sign in now using Facebook or request a free account on The History List.

  • There is no cost to list organizations and events.
  • It's copy-and-paste simple.
  • Anyone—staff, interns, volunteers—can add or edit.  This  means that you can add a listing and someone else who is signed in later can update the listing.

→  Still not sure about participating?  Learn more about how The History List is different and how it's been designed to meet the needs of historic sites and history organizations of all types and sizes, and read what other organizations say about why they participate.


(2) Add your events and exhibits

Examples from Old Sturbridge Village, Vizcaya, the Kentucky Historical Society, and the Hariett Beecher Stowe Center.

If it is a summer camp or multi-day program for kids, check that box.  (More details on promoting summer programs.)
