The Historian Foursquare Badge has seen a few changes in it’s history

Posted on December 15, 2012 by Craig Bowman


 The History Channel Historian Foursquare badge was first launched back in 2010 and it has been gone through many changes in it’s time.  The original badge had the popular circular shape, like most badges had during that time period.  The badge was originally a single unlock, back when badge levels were never heard of and could be unlocked with to a venue “tagged” with a certain keyword, theirs was “historychannel”.
