Build a new website for your historical place

Your historical place or heritage site is a unique and important destination unlike any other. But can potential visitors go online to find visiting information easily, learn about its rich history, or see upcoming events?

With WordPress.com, you can easily create a mobile-friendly website with all the features you need to tell the public about your one-of-a-kind historical destination. Cover the basics by posting information visitors need to know beforehand, such as hours of operation, contact information, parking details, ticket prices, tour details, or FAQs. Easily share photo galleries, facility maps, or video tours of your historic destination to entice new guests. With the help of plugins, you can even sell tickets or accept public donations directly through your website. You can also share blog posts about historic information or special events, and share these to your social media platforms with just a click.

Give your important destination the publicity it deserves with your own historical place website from WordPress.com.
