Make your site a sight to see

Preserving your historic site is only the beginning. Compelling interpretation attracts people to historic sites. It’s how we share history, stir emotions, and allow visitors to truly experience echoes of the past.

History Associates has extensive experience developing creative interpretive programming for historical sites around the world. We start with professional interpretive planning that identifies the particular challenges and objectives of every project. Our certified interpretive planners work with clients to develop a comprehensive strategy for conveying key messages to target audiences in the most effective way, while respecting and preserving their unique heritage.

Our trained researchers and experienced script writers are adept at creating experiences that capture your visitors’ imagination. We bring these classical elements of storytelling to a range of different media, including traditional wayfaring signage, on the Web, via smartphone applications, or in interactive audio and video formats.

Whatever the media, we unite expository text, vivid quotes, maps, contemporary photographs, illustrations, and artifacts to tell the story. Together, these resources introduce the facts and significance of historic events and add detail, color, and human elements to the stories that resonate with visitors and connect them to the place.
