Historic City Companies registered the domain, “historiccity.com” and began publishing a periodic local newsletter on the Internet on March 18, 2000. Reporting as “Historic City News”, the company began accumulating online reader-searchable archives on March 24, 2008. Historic City Companies, Inc. was incorporated on May 14, 2008.
Thirteen-years since our humble beginning, today we can offer our advertisers and sponsors three Internet properties to reach new friends; including over 15,000 daily website readers, Weekday Issue opt-in e-mail subscribers, and thousands of daily facebook, twitter, linkedin, and other social media visitors.
Our 24-hour news portal is the repository for all of our news articles, editorials, and photo journal reports. It contains the full text of every article as well as an online antecedent history which goes back to 2008. This is the place to go to learn more from our complete archives.
Our gateway to facebook and all of the social media features available. This is the place to go to post remarks about breaking news stories, add your opinions or visit our photo galleries; compiled from events happening in and around St Augustine, St Johns County and the Beaches.
All the news that fits in 140 characters — including the URL. This is the place for “on-the-go” readers, who also want to be “in-the-know” throughout the day. Follow us on twitter and you’ll be notified as soon as each article is posted to our website. If the topic is of interest, just click the embedded link to be taken to the full story with pictures.
Currently, our advertisers and sponsors fully support the cost of producing our weekday news journal, and we hope that trend continues. “One thing is for certain,” Historic City News editor Michael Gold said. “If even a small percentage of local advertisers include us in their mix, we will never charge our readers to read the news.”
