If you have Parental Controls enabled then you can log into the admin account and use the "Websites Visited" log in the Parental Controls System Preference to find the date and time the particular site was accessed.
Or you can go to Finder and look for this directory: /Users/[yourUsername]/Library/Caches/Metadata/Safari then open the History folder where your histories located, and arrange it by date. When you find the site you want to look for the date was accessed, just go to "Get info".
Depending on what version of OS X you have, you will have Finder or Spotlight to find your files. Use it.
What part of my responses do you not understand, and I will be happy to explain further?
I'm sorry, but this is the first time that you have mentioned you are using an iPhone 4S!
I will be exiting this conversation now as I don't feel comfortable continuing with you on this. Someone else may be along shortly.
I would be glad to help. Unfortunately Safari does not keep track of every date that you accesses a particular website. It does however track the date of your most recent visit and how many times that site was visited within it's time window (usually only one week). If you'd like, I can show you how to access this information via iFunBox. Also, if your computer is running Windows instead of OS X you will need third-party software to view the plist file that contains the history information. This tool works well for me:
iFunBox may not be able access the file location if your device is not jailbroken. But this depends on the iOS device and iOS version. See if you can access this folder location from the file explorer tab of iFunBox. User > Library > Safari > History.plist
I see. I suspect that your device is not jailbroken and this is preventing you from seeing the correct folders. I would be happy to walk you through the process of jailbreaking if you would like so we can continue with my solution. It won't affect any of the content already on your device and will only take 30-60 minutes. Please let me know if you would like to proceed.
Great. Before we do I want to make sure your device does not already have access to this file, so can you take a look at this image and let me know if this folder structure is accessible in iFunbox for you?
I see. Yes that is common with unjailbroken devices. Do you have iTunes installed on your machine?
OK, to do the jailbreak we will need to get a copy of iOS that matches your exact device model and ios Version number. Can you go into the settings to find the version number of iOS that is installed? This page will walk you through the steps to get your version number:
I'm sorry I am not available for phone support at this time. The jailbreaking process is very simple and straight forward. Simply let me know if you get stuck during this process. RIght now we just need to figure out the version number on your iphone. Are you not able to visit that link? If you click and drag your mouse over the whole link, then hit Ctrl+C to copy, then in your web browser, open a new tab with Ctrl+T and then click on the address bar at the top, and hit Ctrl+V to paste the address, and hit enter.
I see. Before we start, generally when you jailbreak, you must keep that version of ios on your device to stay jailbroken. So if you decided to update to 9.2.1 in the future, you would lose the jailbreak.
So you may want to decide what is more important to you at this time. If you only want to be jailbroken for this single task, and then go back to a locked device after you install the update that's fine too. But you will only be able to access your history file while your device is jailbroken.
Please let me know how you would like to proceed.
OK great. So you will want to visit this page:
And scroll down until you see:
Download Pangu Jailbreak for iOS 7 – iOS 7.1.2
Then click the download link below it to download the Windows or Mac version (this is for the computer you have iTunes installed on and that you've used to sync your phone)
Are you having any trouble with my previous instructions?
I understand if you find the jailbreaking process to be a bit intimidating, but it is actually very simple and safe process. Once you download the jailbreaking tool, and the ios Update file, the rest of the process is just a few mouse clicks.
Please let me know if you are having any trouble with this and whether or not you would like to continue jailbreaking. Keep in mind that this is 100% legal and will not void your warranty.

I'm glad you were able to complete the jailbreak process on your own. And yes, the date format stored in History.plist is a bit cryptic. It actually represents the number of seconds since January 1, 2001. This is also known as Mach Absolute time. The easiest way to convert this to an understandable date and time is to use an online converter. This one should work for you:
Simply enter your date string into the Mach field, make sure the radio button is selected for that field and hit the "Convert Time" button.
Unfortunately that file is the only file that stores history information for Safari, so if the data you are looking for is not there, then the history must have been cleared at some point. Once the history is cleared there is no way to access previous history information. Please let me know if you have any more questions.
I see. On the website data page you are seeing information regarding cookies and local storage for websites. This is different from history. However, it is possible to obtain the creation date of individual cookies. The process is a bit more involved but I would be happy to walk you through it. Here is a page that explains it all:
