Welcome to MainStreetHistory.com!

We provide a complete content management system allowing your town to have their very own "historical walking tour"! MainStreetHistory.com is extremely user-friendly and easy to set up.   You can have your town's Historical Walking Tour up and running in no time!    Once you create an account with us, we will give your site administrator access privileges, allowing him/her to build your Walking Tour from our provided template.   Any updates are instantaneous - there is no lag time!

The following features are currently available:

  • Add an unlimited number of historical sites
  • Add an unlimited number of sponsors (local restaurants, shops, etc.)
  • Upload an unlimited number of photos
  • Upload an unlimited number of audio files

How it works:

After you create your account and register your town name, a *QR (Quick Response) Code is generated on our server for your town and for each historical site that is added by your site administrator.

The generated QR Code is yours to do with as you please - you can include the Code on any marketing literature, brochures, flyers, signs, business cards, etc, or you can print the Code on labels (which can be purchased at any office supply store) to stick on existing literature.

Using their smartphone or tablet, visitors can scan your town's QR Code from the marketing literature and your town's history will be instantly available for them to view! They will have access to any historical facts, events, photos, etc. that you wish to share! They can even listen to any audio files that you have uploaded to your website.

If you wish to post plaques at specific historical sites/landmarks, you can order plaques from us, each printed with the landmark's associated QR Code (allow 4-6 weeks for delivery). These 4" x 4" weather-resistant plaques can be mounted on buildings or pedestals - any location that you have added to your website. When a visitor to your town scans the plaque, the landmark's history will instantly come alive!

*A QR Code is similar to a UPC Bar Code - it can be scanned with any smartphone.
