The Pursuit of History® is the non-profit organization that engages adults in conversation about history and connects them with historic sites in their communities and across the country through innovative in-person and online programming. In-person annual events include History Camp Boston (the first, started in 2014), History Camp Colorado, History Camp Virginia, and, coming soon, History Camp Philadelphia.

After things shut down in March 2020, in April we added a weekly live discussion with a noted author or historian. These are streamed live every Thursday night at 8 pm (Eastern) and every one is archived.

That summer when folks didn’t travel, we realized that what history lovers and historic sites both needed was a safe, easy way to “meet,” so on August 1, 2020 we presented America’s Summer Roadtrip from 9 am to 9 pm, with tours of 12 historic sites and live Q&A with the staff.

With the prospect of in-person History Camps looking dim the following year, on Saturday, July 10, 2021, we held History Camp America, our first nationwide History Camp, an all-day event that included more than 25 sessions and a half-dozen tours of historic sites across the country.

We create and present these innovative programs because we believe that more people gaining a broader understanding of history has never been more important. Please join us in The Pursuit of History.
