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. Our in-person annual events include History Camp Boston (the first, started in 2014), History Camp Colorado, History Camp Virginia, and, more in the works.

After everything shut down in March 2020, we began a weekly discussion series with  noted authors and historians. These are streamed every Thursday night at 8 pm (Eastern) and are archived.

That summer, since folks weren’t traveling to visit historic sites, 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, in July 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.

In-person History Camps returned in 2022 with History Camp Boston 2022.

Whether it’s online or in-person, we look forward to meeting you.

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.
