Historic Places - Locate any historic place in North America

Historic Places is a new website that provides the location of over 100,000 historic structures throughout North America. Unlike the Historic Marker Database I recently shared, this site's focus is on buildings, battlefields, archaeological sites, ships, and statues. You can navigate the site by event, by location, by category, or use their interactive map. The site is still new so a few of their features may still be under construction. Historic Places is a great tool for discovering the history near where you live or when you are planning a  vacation.
