The History Channel is offering a Windows Phone 7 app that will help you find all the historical sites at home and abroad. History Here (link opens your Zune browser) uses your Windows Phone location and pulls up all the historical sites in your area. If you're planning a trip, History Here can also pull up points of interest by searching a city, State or zip code.

Points of Interest are listed based on distance from your current location. You can filter the results based on type of historical site (monument, park, battlefield, etc.) and distance from your location. You can also map out the points of interest as well as search for a specific place.

Tap on a listing and you pull up more specific information on the historical site. You will see a brief narrative of the historical site, location information, website link, any related websites and contact numbers. The only thing missing is the ability to map the individual location or generate driving directions.

History Here is a stable application for your Windows Phone and is running $2.99 over at the Marketplace. If you like to travel and touring historical sites, History Here is one app worth considering.
