Anyone—staff, interns, volunteers—can enter or edit. Enter your events on The History List and embed the list in your site. Looks like your site. People never leave your site.

    Organizations on The History List Organizations on The History List Presentation Transcript

    • In their own words: Organizations on The History List
    • “The History List is quickly becoming a pioneer on the web for historical institutions. Everything we are looking to share with the public is at our finger tips, easy to use, and well thought out.” Jodie McMenamin Development Officer USS Constitution Museum
    • “The Massachusetts Historical Society offers most more than 100 public programs and events each year. What makes The History List different is its targeted approach. It is an easy-to-use online resource that connects history enthusiasts to history-related events and programs.” Carol Knauff Director of Communications Massachusetts Historical Society
    • “Each year, Historic New England presents hundreds of public events and programs at dozens of sites in five states. Unlike other event-listing websites, by focusing exclusively on history, The History List connects our events to a highly targeted audience and helps that audience understand the full range of our offerings.” Rob Watson Marketing Manager Historic New England
    • “There are plenty of calendar services available online, but only The History List caters specifically to the history community. Their event-listing services are intuitive and easy, their creators are smart and friendly, and our ability to communicate with like-minded individuals and institutions about our events and programming has never been easier because of them. I’d tell any history-related organization, if you aren’t using The History List, you’re overlooking an extremely useful and effective tool.” Matt Wilding Media & Content Manager The Freedom Trail Foundation
    • “I will say, your calendar is the best online calendar I’ve submitted event information to. I will definitely upload our 2013 events, and share the site when possible.” Tara Richards Marketing and Program Director Brucemore (Cedar Rapids, Iowa)
    • “I just heard about The History List and can't believe I didn't know about this amazing resource sooner. Clearly, it will be a boon to museums and historic sites as locals will use it to find events close to them. But it will also be good for travelers.” Monta Lee Dakin Executive Director Mountain-Plains Museums Association Colorado, Kansas, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Texas and Wyoming
    • “I'm incredibly impressed. I do a ton of these events calendars and I dread them because a. they are all different b. they don't give enough flexibility (different hours on different days for example) and c. I'm forever scrolling or hitting enter or doing some other forbidden action that messes up my entries or causing me to get red errors all over the place. You even let me change font size, bold my text, etc . . . You've created an easy to use, flexible, attractive site.” Anne Grasberger Volunteer Goschenhoppen Historians Henry Antes Plantation and the Goschenhoppen Historians Folk Festival
    • “I'm always looking for new ways to promote our events and programs and it seems like the History List is a great place to do it.” Laurie Nivison Director of Marketing Historic Deerfield (Deerfield, Massachusetts)
    • “If readers aren’t familiar with The History List, it’s an easy way to promote your events online in very clever and engaging ways.” Max A. van Balgooy President of Engaging Places A consulting firm working with historic sites, museums, and other cultural institutions
    • “This is so cool. The History List has events ("bring you face to face with history") listed on its website according to date - and if you input your city, it will also tell you the distance from your home. So you can find fun events (or if you are a history-related organization, post fun events) with as much information as possible.” Lauren Muney Silhouettes By Hand, on Facebook
    • “@TheHistoryList Just "discovered" you! What an asset to SM and history. TY.” Jane M. Mason Director of Communications and Marketing Western Reserve Historical Society (Cleveland, Ohio) on Twitter
    • “Thanks for the invitation, love to and love your idea of promoting historic events!” Granite Falls Historical Society (Granite Falls, MN) on Facebook
    • “Check out this fantastic website for The History List! I love this concept—all history events, all the time. What a great resource for travelers who are interested in heritage tourism.” Steph McDougal Founder of McDoux Preservation (Kemah, Texas) on Facebook
