The History Press brings a new way of thinking to history publishing—preserving and enriching community by empowering history enthusiasts to write local stories for local audiences. Our books are useful resources for research and preservation, but it is their value as touchstones for community identity that drives us to publish works that national houses and university presses too often have ignored. Infused with local color, our books are highly readable, often brief and aimed at a general readership.
Since starting in 2004, we have published nearly two thousand of the highest quality local and regional history titles from coast to coast. We offer local authors a full-service, traditional publishing experience, from project inception and editorial assistance through design and printing and on to publicity and sales.
