“What inspires us is that every Nantucket lightship basket is one-of-a-kind incorporating the heart of the person who made it.  Both of us are profoundly excited and desire to do what we can to preserve this iconic craft and its history,” says Karen Butler and Jackie Kupper.

As an affiliate of the NHA, the NLBM retains all funds donated, and are to be used solely to carry out its mission. The NLBM’s ongoing emphasis is teaching the craft and sharing the history of making Nantucket lightship baskets.  Ultimately a new gallery dedicated to Nantucket craft, to be named the Nantucket Lightship Basket Museum Gallery within the NHA’s Broad Street campus will be created.

The Nantucket Historical Association preserves and interprets the history of Nantucket through its programs, collections, and properties, in order to promote the island’s significance and foster an appreciation of it among all audiences.
