About The History List


Lee Wright | Founder | The History List | History Camp

I started The History List Store in 2016 with our trademarked "History Nerd" design.

Today we have hundreds of products and nearly everything you see is our own design and most products are made in America.

The History List

Your purchases support the operation and expansion of The History List, which helps attract new visitors and members to historic sites and history organizations across the country, and it's all provided free.

I started The History List in 2011 in the Boston area and it's grown to become the largest list of history-related events and exhibits. With your help, it will continue to grow and expand across the country.

History Camp

I started History Camp in 2014. It is a ground-breaking event that brings together people from all walks of life. We have now put on History Camps in several cities and have done at least one every year, with the exception of 2000.  In April of that year we expanded our online programs to include weekly discussions with noted historians. These are streamed and archived. In fact, there are now more than 150 to choose from in our archive covering all eras of history.

The Pursuit of History

In 2019 I co-founded the non-profit organization The Pursuit of History to expand History Camp to reach more people in-person and online. Proceeds from the sale of some of the products in The History List Store benefit The Pursuit of History.

In 2023 we launched our first event designed for a small group of people to explore one topic in-depth: The Pursuit of History: Forging the Continental Army.

More about The History List Store

My thanks to my colleagues who work hard as we continue to expand The History List Store:

  • Danella — Store operations
  • Larisa — Social media and customer service
  • Kevin — Site operations and infrastructure
  • Fabio — Fulfillment operations
  • Claire — Social media and customer service

They are the reason we have grown to become the largest site for original products that people with a passion for history love.

Your feedback is always welcome

I'm always happy to hear from you. If you have a question or suggestion about the products we design and offer, please send me a note. I read every message and we capture every idea.
