    Default Historic or Historical

    What is the difference between the two sentences?

    1. This is a historic place.
    2. This is a historical place.

    Hello, NABADIP.
    I suggest you consult good dictionaries.
    For example, please go to:
    Merriam-Webster's Learner's Dictionary
    Merriam-Webster's Learner's Dictionary

    I hope these will shed some light on your query.
    (Perhaps we'll need more context.)

    (Edit)
    And one more:
