The purpose of this research is to develop a local history based on learning resource for character education. This study uses an Instructional Development Model (MPI) consisting of eight stages, namely needs analysis, instructional analysis, identification of learners characteristics, determining basic competencies, developing syllabus and SAP, designing assessment systems, developing learning modules, and formative evaluation implementation. The results of preliminary research indicate that the value of local character is not integrated in the learning process in History Education Program so that it needs to be made a learning resource which can be a reference in learning local history that students can identify, integrate and apply the character values in campus life as well as in social life. Sources of learning local history can increase the sense of care and interest in the regional domain of students. Local history can be an effective tool to stimulate a deeper interest and understanding of demand-oriented teaching. Events with the presence of prominent figures in historical events are expected to inspire students in the form of personal character because Holt's study of history in Frost not only enhances the understanding of the past, but also the understanding of future challenges [1].
