The Great Fire of 1846

Join us for a spotlight presentation on the Roof Walk of the Whaling Museum to commemorate 175th anniversary of the “Great Fire” on Nantucket.

Enjoy an evening on the roof and listen to a Historical Interpreter tell the story of the Great Fire of 1846 that destroyed much of the downtown area below!

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.
