I've read some articles here that suggest that we are able to retrieve Chrome's history as SQLite databases:
Export history from chome browser
How can I view "archived" Google Chrome history — i.e. history older than three months?

I can't seem to find the folder where these are supposed to be located. In the first article, the provided path was ~/Library/Application\ Support/Google/Chrome/Default/History, but there is no such directory in my filesystem. I am using Chrome 26.0.1410.65 on Mac OS X Lion. And I am signed in with my Google account.

Article provided in the last of the above is very useful, but it is only for Windows. Is there something similar to that but for Mac? Is there a way to find the folder where Chrome stores my history?

Mine turned up here:

/Volumes/[Name_of_My_Home_Partition]/home/Library/Application Support/Google/Chrome/Default/

I found it by opening the terminal and running the following command:

sudo find / -type d -iname "chrome"
