Summer Exhibition Member Preview Reception

Join us for a special kick-off to the summer season while exploring our Summer Exhibit, Summer on Nantucket: A History of the Island Resort. Containing more than 200 artifacts from the NHA collection, the exhibit tells the story of Nantucket as a summer destination, from the opening of the first tourist hotels in the 1840s to the multi-billion-dollar real-estate, construction, and rental economy of today.

Join Gosnell Executive Director Niles Parker, Obed Macy Research Chair and Chief Curator Mike Harrison and members of the NHA staff and Board of Directors for this private preview.
