Highlighting gifts from the Friends and members of the Friends from over 35 years of invaluable support to the association.

Support from the Friends of the Nantucket Historical Association, has enabled the NHA to acquire numerous artifacts, works of art, and documents, and to ensure that such objects stay on or return to Nantucket to be enjoyed by the people of the island. The organization has also supported such projects as the construction of the Gosnold Center; the conservation of artifacts; and the restoration of the parlors in the Hadwen House.
