My Nantucket Neighborhood

In 2018, the NHA begins a new ongoing project to collect the stories of the diverse Nantucket neighborhood communities, each with their own rich history and insights. The stories will be told through historic images, video and audio oral histories, and other remembrances.

We are beginning with the neighborhood of ’Sconset, generously funded in part by the Judy Family Foundation.
