As a way to share and inspire the love of local history, the idea of HistorySoft was born in 2010. As a liability protection for electronic devices used in a Museum indoor location positioning system (invented by David Brinkman), HistorySoft LLC was created in May of 2011. For educational purposes and appreciation of history, numerous GPS enabled smartphone apps have been created. In 2012, HistorySoft turned to archaeology and, with over 100 volunteers, found and uncovered the lost Colonial town of Granby and Fort Congaree II in Cayce, SC. In 2017, HistorySoft continues with more archaeological projects and also turns its focus back to education technology with three major Virtual Reality projects. We believe Virtual Reality is the perfect platform to bring forgotten history back to life.
