  91. 91. “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

  93. 93. “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
  94. 94. “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 and Content Manager Freedom Trail Foundation
  95. 95. “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
