September 2014 – We launched our events page to promote historic events around New England. More than 2,200 people visit each month for ideas about things to see and do.

February 2015 – We experienced our busiest day to date, with 19,936 visitors on a single day.

December 2018 – Celebrated hitting the 2 million visitors per year pace.

May 2019 – Published our first book with Rowman & Littlefield’s Downeast Books division – Bar Harbor Babylon.
