Why Register?

There’s nothing like a national event to bring a community together. Our hope for #HistoricPlacesDay is that not only will visitors enjoy a fantastic day out, but organizers, hosts and volunteers will grow together as a community around a common goal.

Bringing the best kind of traffic – foot

#HistoricPlacesDay is all about increasing visitation to historic places. Not only does it enrich the lives of visitors young and old, it opens the door to discovering new places. We hope that towns and cities embrace #HistoricPlacesDay and coordinate efforts to tie events together that will enhance the experience of visitors.

A coherent & consistent nationwide campaign

Part of the #HistoricPlacesDay strategy is a full nationwide marketing campaign, which ultimately will lead visitors to our website to see all the sites partaking in our one day event. Benefit from our campaign by registering on our website for free, and enjoy the increase in visitation – it’s that simple!

Did somebody say free advertising?

By simply registering on our site as a historic place, your site will receive thousands of views and an increase in visitation – not only on #HistoricPlacesDay itself, but throughout the year. Through word-of-mouth and social media, visitors will tell the story of their experience – reap the benefits on us!

Registering for #HistoricPlacesDay is as easy as it gets. Tell us about your site, provide some images and your social media deets, and we’ll sort out the rest!
