Discover the history in your neighborhood
Want to find historic places in your neighborhood—or in some other specific geographical location? The site Historic Places: All Historic Places in North America lets the user browse and locate historic places in a favorite location. Simply type in a location in the search box and the interactive map shows pins of historic buildings, objects structures and sites in the area. Click for more information about each of the pins. This site would be great for tourists, but it is also a great site for writers of historical fiction who need a general overview of the history in a particular region.The site contains about 100,000 North American historic places listed in its database.
