Hi, I’m Tim Grove, a history geek, consultant, and author who can’t pass up any opportunity to visit a historic site. I’m also a public historian, having worked for over twenty years for various history museums in Washington D.C. and Missouri, including Colonial Williamsburg and the Smithsonian. I hold a master’s degree in history, am a big fan of National History Day and am on the steering committee of the History Relevance Campaign. I believe passionately that anyone, no matter how dull they think history is, can be converted into a history lover. It’s all about how history is presented. This blog is a random collection of some of the places that have inspired me. I hope you’ll enjoy my thoughts about history and history sites and I invite you to add to the conversation.
I welcome your comments and suggestions related to this blog. I also welcome ideas for posts and would like to experiment with guest posts. If you have a favorite history site and would like to write about it, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

My book, A Grizzly in the Mail and Other Adventures in American History, offers stories from my 20+ years at some of America’s most popular history museums. My two books for ages 10-14 are First Flight Around the World (a YALSA Excellence in Nonfiction Award finalist) and Milestones of Flight. Up next: Star Spangled: The Story of a Flag, a Battle and a Song, due out in early 2019.
