Created by the American Historical Association in 2002, the National History Center aims to reinforce the critical role that history and historical knowledge play in public decision-making and civic life. The Center facilitates historical inquiry and debate, and ensures that the scholarship and knowledge of professional historians are disseminated to the public effectively.
Historians in the United States and throughout the world benefit from the National History Center, which is located in Washington, DC. Such a center, moreover, does more than serve the needs of historians. It is a forum through which historians exchange ideas with policymakers and the media. Perhaps most important, it enables historians to have the public role.
We are on our way to more fully realizing that intention, thanks to the National History Center Founders and Contributors. Please consider joining them by making your contribution today.
