uuuuu The Nantucket Harbor Stop & Shop is ideally located for visitors with a boat slip or vacationing in our downtown inns and guest houses. Providing all quality ingredients, the store carries everything you need for a family barbeque or picnic. It’s also the perfect stop for a quick take-out breakfast, lunch or dinner…. enjoy it on one of the sunny benches at the wharf or take it to the beach! Plans are underway for a brand new mid-island store as well!

Renowned for unique and special gifts and home accessories, Freedman’s of Nantucket always has something new! Come see the most “WOW” clock ever…with twelve miniature clocks attached to one main clock! Also new this year is a nickel-hammered serving tray surrounded by a black, tan and white buffalo horn with horns for handles. Don Freedman is usually on hand to show you his personally created marble pieces– don’t miss the pair of white marble whales! Stop by the store at 14 Centre Street while on island for a truly one-of-a-kind gift.

Their exclusive collection of Nantucket Charm Beads (compatible with Pandora, Troll & Chamilia) combined with their nautical charm bar allows you to build and design your signature piece of Nantucket jewelry. Visit the store at 12 Main Street year- round for monogram jewelry, tote bags and outdoor entertaining items…or visit on-line at www.BlueBeetleNantucket.com.

Plus, expanded commercial and residential loan offerings provide business owners and homebuyers access to local lenders with competitive rates and smart borrowing solutions.

F R E Q U E N T LY A S K E D Where can I find parks/playgrounds for children? There is a lovely garden adjacent to the Atheneum on India Street, as well as a number of “pocket parks” scattered throughout Town. Children’s Beach, Jetties Beach, Lily Pond, Nantucket Elementary School, Tom Nevers Field and the Nantucket Airport all feature playgrounds for children. The Skateboard Park on Backus Lane (off Surfside Road) is a very popular spot for teens and ‘tweens. The Elementary School playground also features a soccer pitch. Tuppancy Links, Sanford Farm, and the cranberry bogs off Milestone Road are also terrific spots for long, leisurely walks. Exploration Station is a play center at 135 Old South Road featuring a science-themed dream space for children 2.9-8 years old. Inspired by children’s museums, Exploration Station is filled with exciting and interesting activities and art stations.

What does ACK mean? ACK is the Federal Aviation Administration’s official three-letter code for Nantucket Memorial Airport, taken from letters in the word Nantucket. The US government uses “N” for military airport installations. Thus, Nantucket and Washington’s National Airport use ACK and DCA rather than NAN and NAT. ACK has become “shorthand” or slang when referring to Nantucket. Do I need a car on Nantucket? It is not necessary to bring a car to Nantucket. Bicycles are popular means of transportation, and there are paved bike paths leading to all ends of the island. Rental vehicles and taxis are also available, and the Nantucket Regional Transit Authority provides island-wide seasonal shuttle service. Traffic congestion is a growing concern among visitors and residents alike. Fewer cars on Nantucket’s streets and roads will mean a more tranquil vacation experience for everyone!

RESPECTING OUR

N

Natural Resources

early half of Nantucket is protected conservation land. Several areas and

habitats are rare not only to this region, but to the world. Although protected lands are owned by several groups with diverse missions, the goal of preserving

the island’s unique natural resources is equally shared. Enhance your visit by following these guidelines to ensure the safety, comfort and enjoyment of one and all. Protect our fragile dunes, grasslands, and heathlands. Nantucket’s soils are extremely fragile and easily eroded. Plant material – whether living or dead – helps to stabilize the soil and prevent erosion. Many of our plants are rare or endangered and protected by law.

Keep vehicles and bikes on well-established roads and paths. Driving over fragile plants just once will leave scars that take years to heal, and cause severe erosion problems, particularly in sandy soils near the shoreline.

Leave wildflowers for all to enjoy. Picking wildflowers prevents them from setting and dispersing seed, thus jeopardizing the next generation of plants.

Be respectful of private property. Most of Nantucket’s protected open spaces are accessible to the public, with some limitations. Many are bordered by private property. Please join in our efforts to be respectful of private ways.

Be aware of one-way streets. Laid out in the eighteenth century, numerous town streets are narrow, with high curbstones, and many are one-way. Watch for one-way signs and obey them when driving a vehicle or on a bicycle.

Dress appropriately in town. Bare feet and beach attire are suitable for the beach, but not on the streets of town, or in shops and restaurants. Please be considerate and dress appropriately.

Refrain from excessive noise. Many people visit or live on Nantucket to escape the noise of the mainland. Noise pollution, whether human or vehicular, infringes on the rights of others. The island’s noise ordinance begins at 10 p.m. and remains in effect until 7:30 a.m. Please refrain from excessive noise during those hours.

Observe the rules when visiting with pets. On public property, dogs should be leashed at all times, which prevents them from disturbing wildlife, especially our rare and endangered ground-nesting birds. Please dispose of your dog’s waste properly. Visitors are advised to travel with their pet’s current rabies vaccination certificates, tags and licenses.

Properly dispose of garbage. Please use the trash receptacles located throughout town and at the beaches. You may also dispose of garbage and recyclables at our landfill. Hours: Summer (May 1 - Sept. 30): Mon. - Fri., 7 a.m. - 3 p.m.; Sat. & Sun., 8 a.m. - 12 p.m. Winter (Oct. 1 - April 30): Mon. - Fri., 8 a.m. - 3 p.m.; Sat. & Sun., 8 a.m. - 12 p.m. Closed on Federal and State holidays.

Volunteer with the Nantucket Clean Team! If you would like to do more to help, the Nantucket Clean Team volunteers meet each Saturday from May through November – rain or shine – for under an hour to pick up trash around the island.

Leave Only Footprints There is an adage: “Take only photographs, leave only footprints.” We hope that you will take this saying to heart during your island visit. Though Nantucket is graced with many miles of beaches, little of the coastline is actually public property. Many property owners have generously allowed public access to their beachfront. In return for this privilege – and it is indeed a privilege – we ask that both visitors and residents treat all of our island beaches with respect. This includes obeying “No Trespassing” signs, using only designated entry ©Lawrel Strauch-Spera

points, and disposing of litter properly. Thank you for your cooperation in preserving public access to Nantucket’s pristine shores and protecting our fragile environment.

Nantucket

by June R. Meyers Despite its diminutive size – a mere 14 miles long by 3 ½ miles wide – and its remote location twenty-six miles at sea, Nantucket is brimming with an array of activities and pursuits throughout the year.

As you disembark the ferry on your initial voyage to Nantucket, you are instantly transported back to an era when whaling boats graced the wharves and horse-andcarriages traversed the cobblestone streets. Steeped in history, this storied island was formed from a glacial moraine deposited during the last Ice Age. Originally inhabited by the Wampanoag Indians, Nantucket was deeded by the English to Thomas Mayhew and his son, merchants of Watertown and Martha’s Vineyard. Islanders pursued the behemoth sperm whale – discovered to be the source of the finest quality oil – from the mid-1700’s to the late 1830’s, when

20 • 2014 Official Guide to Nantucket

Nantucket reigned as the undisputed whaling capital of the world. The island has been synonymous with tourism since the mid-19th century when kerosene abruptly replaced spermaceti oil as an illuminant, hastening the demise of the whaling industry. Ever since, visitors from all corners of the globe have been lured to this faraway outpost for its pure air and pristine waters, their curiosity piqued by Herman Mellville’s lyrical prose in his enduring classic Moby-Dick: “Nantucket! Take out your map and look at it. See what a real corner of the world it occupies; how it stands there away off shore…” One hundred plus years hence, there is nary a traffic light, neon sign or chain store to be found on Nantucket, which boasts a proud history of historic district and land preservation. With eighty miles of breathtaking beaches and temperate weather – owing to its close proximity to the Gulf Stream – the island is a summer vacation goer’s paradise. As varied as its history, however, is the range of activities and pursuits available to both islanders and visitors alike. Whether you’re a history or film buff, a sports enthusiast, a nature lover, a “foodie”, a connoisseur of the arts, or simply crave relaxation in an idyllic setting, you are sure to discover your very own Nantucket where you can return again and again. Our island celebrates individuality and embraces all lifestyles and cultures, creating a marvelous medley of people who make Nantucket a unique and splendid place to live – and visit.

A repository of this abundant and varied history, the Nantucket Historical Association and its meticulously preserved properties chart the island’s evolution from a small 17th century farming community to its heyday as the capital of the American whaling industry, to its current incarnation as a premier resort destination. The Nantucket Shipwreck & Lifesaving Museum – as well as the The Admiral Sir Isaac Coffin School and Egan Maritime Institute – pay homage to the island’s rich maritime history, while the Lightship Basket Museum explores the heritage of a true Nantucket icon which – transformed into a distinctive and elegant handbag – proudly graces the arms of ladies hither and yon. Another historic property, the African Meeting House, remains one of the oldest African American church buildings in the nation, a lasting tribute to the history of “New Guinea”, a sector of Nantucket where people of color resided in the early 19th century. The home of Maria Mitchell, America’s first female astronomer – who discovered a comet from a telescope perched atop the Pacific Bank building – is lovingly preserved adjacent to the Maria Mitchell Natural Science Museum. Our public library, the stately Atheneum, is one of the oldest public libraries in continuous service in the United States. To gain further insight into the history, architecture – and paranormal activity (yes, ghosts!) – that make Nantucket

a unique travel destination, take a leisurely self-guided walking tour, or join one of the many tours led by knowledgeable local guides. For gourmet food lovers, the island boasts cuisines to satisfy the most discriminating palate! Acclaimed culinary establishments abound, with not one, but two Restaurant Weeks – in spring and autumn – to celebrate imaginative, delectable fare by offering three-course dinners at affordable prices. A “Junior Chef” competition also encourages budding culinary “artistes.” Oenophiles are drawn to Nantucket in May for the eagerly-anticipated Wine Festival Weekend. Prestigious wineries from around the globe showcase their vintages in a series of gala events, including Grand Tastings, a Harbor Gala, and educational seminars. If you’re a naturalist, Nantucket offers a wealth of discovery. Birders – pardon the pun – flock to the island for a peek at the rare species that inhabit our expansive topography. Flora and fauna – including sand plains, grasslands, heathlands, salt marshes, rosa rugosa, and beach plum – are quite diverse and unique to our shores. For those with an interest in astronomy, both the Vestal Street and Loines Observatories offer public stargazing, weather-permitting. The Aquarium on Washington Street exhibits marine life and leads ecology and beach discovery field trips, while the Maria Mitchell

Association educates children and adults alike through its various programs and facilities. Sports enthusiasts will delight in the multitude of indoor and outdoor activities the island provides. Bicyclists revel in Nantucket’s smooth terrain and miles of scenic bike paths, while surfers and windsailers, scuba divers and paddle boarders, take to the waters for exercise and plein-air enjoyment. For avid runners, a variety of road races – including the popular Nantucket Triathlon, an Iron Man Relay and 5K races – are a distinct highlight. A round of golf on Miacomet Golf Course – one mile from the ocean – is quite enjoyable, whether you’re a novice or a veteran golfer. Nantucket also boasts a course for disc golf, a fun and challenging family activity. Fishing – whether it be surfcasting or charter – is a major recreational activity, as the waters of Nantucket Sound teem with bluefish, striped bass, tuna and marlin, to name a few. Whale watching by charter boat is also a popular pastime. Sailors and landlubbers alike gather in droves for the annual Figawi

Race on Memorial Day weekend, as well as the Opera House Cup and Nantucket Race Week regattas in August which combine fun, sportsmanship and camaraderie. Back on land, a state-of-the-art skateboard park and ice rink round out the many options for active pursuits. For over a century, Nantucket has been a haven for the Arts. The sheer diversity of artists and cultural offerings is impressive, with numerous galleries, classes and exhibitions enticing lovers of arts and culture to the island year-round. In June, the renowned Nantucket Film Festival lures movie buffs by the score for preview screenings and signature programs, as well as the chance to hob-nob with luminaries like Jerry Stiller, Steve Martin and Diane Keaton. First-rate theatre productions are staged frequently, and noted authors often lecture at the Atheneum and other island venues. The Nantucket Comedy Festival in July attracts top comedic performers from across the country, and also encourages kids and teens to ply their craft in the “Stand Up & Learn” program. Musical concerts – including the

stellar Boston Pops performance on Jetties Beach in August – as well as church and choral group presentations and classical music assure world-class entertainment throughout the year. A week-long Arts Festival in autumn features studio tours, lectures, films, theatre, poetry readings, and even an Organ Crawl! Last, but certainly not least, Nantucket is a veritable “nirvana” for shoppers. Scores of unique emporiums and boutiques – many of which are small and independently owned – display a cornucopia of wares from jewelry, couture clothing, pottery, and artwork, to local crafts such as scrimshaw, carved quarterboards, Sailor’s Valentines, and lightship baskets. Antique shops are also prolific, with lively, high quality auctions conducted throughout the year. The annual summer NHA Antiques & Design Show under the tent at Bartlett’s Farm is a particular favorite, attracting a slew of vendors and shoppers. And, if you’re seeking more “eclectic” treasures donated by local homes and estate sales – with very attractive prices – plan to visit the Hospital Thrift Shop on India Street.

Nantucket’s Lighthouses

©Cary Hazlegrove

Nantucket has a legendary history of maritime pursuits, and its three majestic lighthouses guarding the island’s northern tip, eastern shoreline and harbor evoke a time when Nantucketers harvested the sea. These proud sentinels symbolize the confluence of past and present, and have witnessed decades of history as the island evolved from “Whaling Capital of the World” to a premier vacation resort. Great Point Light, Sankaty Head Light and Brant Point Light all played important roles in guiding sailors home, with their bright beacons leading vessels safely around the shoals and through the fog.

Located on the northern tip of the island, Great Point Light overlooks miles of pristine conservation land and beaches favored by bird watchers, picnickers, and surfcasters. Sankaty Head Lighthouse, high atop Sankaty Bluff, overlooks one of Nantucket’s finest golf

courses and, due to erosion, was moved back from the bluff in 2007. As you arrive in the harbor, you’re welcomed by the familiar sight of Brant Point Lighthouse, the second lighthouse built in America, and the lowest light in New England at 26 feet above sea level.

Number 29 of Top 50 Yachting Towns (Yachting Magazine 2013)

This tiny island off the East Coast is one of the most prestigious and hallowed addresses in America. A crescent-shaped spit of land nearly 30 miles off of Massachusetts’ southeast coast, Nantucket was Ground Zero for the whaling trade and the venerable R.H. Macy’s brand. During the prosperous whaling era – when Nantucket was indeed the “Whaling Capital of the World” – it also ranked as the third

largest city in Massachusetts, besting all the Commonwealth’s other cities except Boston and Salem. In addition to the distinction of being named a National Historic Landmark in 1966, three of the world’s most esteemed travel publications recently added Nantucket to a pantheon of destinations including the finest places in the US and the world to live or visit. In its The 10 Best of Everything (2012

Nantucket Historical Timeline 1602 - Nantucket was discovered and charted by Capt. Bartholomew Gosnold, an English mariner.

1690 - Island inhabitants began to pursue the right whale from along shore.

1746 - A beacon light suspended between two poles was erected on Brant Point. 1797 - The streets of Town were first named.

1800 – 1840 Nantucket reigned as the whaling capital of the world.


Of course, the island boasts “all modern comforts,” including “the best beaches on the East Coast,” according to another. And a lovely accolade from Edge of the Carolinas magazine: “The island’s beauty is timeless. A modern society has grown around weatherbeaten clapboard homes that are fiercely and lovingly preserved. Life is calm and relaxed.” In addition to the island’s windswept beaches, architectural treasures (Nantucket has more than 800 pre-Civil War homes), the enchanting village of ‘Sconset and wealth of local lore and traditions, Nantucket’s history is significant. Originally deeded by the English – who controlled all territory from the coast of Maine to New York – Nantucket was conveyed to Thomas Mayhew and his son, merchants of Watertown and Martha’s

edition) National Geographic proclaimed Nantucket Best Island in the World and TripAdvisor ranked it #8 of America’s Top Ten Most Desirable Islands. Travel & Leisure (May 2012) dubbed Nantucket’s cobblestone Main Street One of America’s Greatest Main Streets. The Travel Channel ranked the island third of Top Ten US Beaches and Yachting magazine recognized Nantucket as one of its Top 50 Yachting Towns (at a respectable #29) in 2013. In addition, the island’s renowned hotels, the White Elephant and The Wauwinet, made Condé Nast Traveler’s Gold List this year. A memorable quote appeared in The Improper Bostonian, describing the island as such: “Everywhere you look on Nantucket, you see a picture worth framing.” Connecticut-based Cottages & Gardens magazine called it “Treasure Island,” a nod to Nantucket’s cornucopia of hidden treasures and unique, longstanding traditions. In June, Nantucket was featured in a Travel Channel episode with the alluring title Nantucket Island Secrets; this episode – broadcast nationally to an audience of more than 37 million viewers – was carried on every major broadcast provider. Vanity Fair magazine described the whaling-era island: “With its whale oil, Nantucket was once the uncontested Silicon Valley of its day, the supplier of light to America.” Condé Nast Traveler ranked Nantucket #8 of Top 10 Islands in the US. Its readers variously touted the “nice cobblestone village” coupled with “rugosa roses” and the “salt air” as defining this quaint Massachusetts enclave , transporting the visitor “back to the early settler days.” “You feel as if you are part of the old seafaring lives of whalers and fishermen,” remarked one reader.

1846 - The Great Fire destroyed Nantucket’s wharves and much of its business district.

1847 - A comet was discovered by America’s first woman astronomer, Maria Mitchell, on October 1.

Vineyard, in 1641. Considering the collective value of Nantucket’s real estate in current dollars, it is stunning that Mayhew sold his interest to Nantucket’s “nine original purchasers” – Tristram Coffin, Thomas Macy, Christopher Hussey, Richard Swayne, Thomas Bernard, Peter Coffin, Stephen Greenleaf, John Swayne, and William Pike (some of these names are still common on the island) “for the sum of thirty Pounds, and two beaver hats.” An island anchored to an illustrious past, Nantucket is the former Whaling Capital of the World, a leader in social enlightenment, abolitionism, land conservation (nearly half the island is deeded as conservation land) and historic preservation.

first woman astronomer, Maria Mitchell, discovered a comet in 1847 from her telescope perched atop the Pacific Bank. She received a gold medal inscribed: Non Frustra Signorum Obitus Speculamur et Ortus (“Not in vain do we watch the setting and rising of the stars”), presented to her by King Frederick VII of Denmark. Islanders are stewards of this remarkable history, preserved historic places, and the land. Indeed, the island is under relentless attack from the wind and tides, and many preservation and protection efforts are ongoing. Nantucket’s Main Street, one of America’s most prestigious addresses, was also proclaimed one of the most beautiful Main Streets in the world by Travel & Leisure.

1918 - Cars were first permitted on the island, after the demise of the Nantucket Railroad.

1955 - The town of Nantucket was proclaimed an Historic District by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. 1962 - The first jet airplane landed at Nantucket Memorial Airport in early July.


Street’s cobblestones versus traditional paving over nearly a century ago in 1919, Mr. Harry B. Turner (publisher and editor of island newspaper Inquirer and Mirror, 1907-1948) summarized it in his July 1919 editorial:

Strolling along this enchanting thoroughfare from the Harbor, one easily imagines stepping back in time to the mid-19th century or beyond. With a stunning collection of pristine period houses, a visit to Nantucket is like peering through a historic kaleidoscope, so much so that someone transported from a century ago would find much of the ‘old town’ unchanged. Most vintage homes are covered in untreated weather-beaten shingles, and one’s initial glimpse of Nantucket Town is often on approach from the water, misted by a swirling fog; thus the island’s beloved moniker ‘the Grey Lady.’ Of course, whether that nickname is evocative of the frequent fogs or the graying of the houses’ signature cedar shake shingles (or possibly both) is cause for conjecture. Some contend that the Main Street cobblestones were once ballast on whaling ships, weighing down the empty holds as cargoes remained overseas. Others claim the cobblestones originated – without all the exaggerated historic baggage – from Gloucester, Massachusetts, north of Boston. Nantucket’s Main Street was first paved in 1837, and it was paved with cobblestones. Owners of the town’s landmark properties possibly eschewed the impassable, filthy, muddy streets in favor of a cobblestone road. One leading theory maintains that these landowners were responsible, raising the funds for the project on their own, therefore paving it as they saw fit. So they brought the cobblestones from Gloucester and paid to have them laid. For more than 175 years, Main Street has been thus ‘paved’ with cobblestones, although there are still disputes about their origin. In keeping with the brouhaha, controversy and great divide over maintaining Main

of her own peculiar charm. The covering of the cobbles on the business section of Main Street certainly would not do it any more than did the rebuilding of the other streets.

The concept of paving over Main Street’s cobblestones was one of the first ideological threats to Nantucket’s historical integrity. It was not the last by any means and box stores, superstores, wind farms, and McMansions have all threatened to rob the island of its historical and cultural underpinnings. At every juncture, the same spirited debate has left Nantucket blissfully free of many of the trappings of the 21st century the world can discover just 26 miles across Nantucket Sound.

Nantucket is translated as “far away land” in the Wampanoag dialect. • Nantucket was part of Dukes County, New York until 1691. The governor imposed the name “Sherburne” on the town.

Trivia

• When the whaling era ended, commercial shipping gave way to recreational boating. Daily excursions from the mainland on the graceful old steamers brought the first summer visitors. • There is a harpoon in the Whaling Museum that was removed from a sperm whale caught twice by the same man – nine years apart. • R.H. Macy was a Nantucket boy who made his mark in retailing. Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade balloons were designed by longtime summer resident Tony Sarg.

• In 1795, the town successfully petitioned the General Court of Massachusetts to change the name from Sherburne to Town of Nantucket.

• Frederick Douglass gave his first speech before an all-white audience in the Nantucket Atheneum’s Great Hall in 1841.

• Shortly after 1700, Quakerism began to take root and, by the end of the 18th century, the Society of Friends was the major on-island denomination.

• In the last two decades, Nantucket’s tourist season has extended from April to December. Visitors are increasingly attracted by the quiet beauty of the offseason, the charm of a Nantucket Noel and the abundance of Spring festivals.

• Sheep storms were what islanders called periods of intense fogginess which often presided over the moors in late June and early July. In the 1800’s, they knew that after several days the fogs would drench the thick coats of the many sheep grazing in pasturing sections called “Sheep Commons.” Inevitably, after the fog came hot, sunny days during which their coats would dry. Time for shearing, and then-famous Sheep Shearing Festivals, marked by fun and games and food for one and all.

• About 50,000 white-oak casks were produced yearly for the whaling industry by the more than 20 coopers’ shops on Nantucket during the mid-1700’s to early 1800’s.

• The straw factory was one business which survived well over many years. It was largely manned by Nantucket women, and began in the old Friend’s Meetinghouse on Main Street in 1852.

• About 35,000 boxes had to be made annually for the shipping of spermaceti candles manufactured at the candlehouses.

• Nantucket Cottage Hospital was originally located on West Chester Street.

• Nantucket was the last community in Massachusetts to lift the automobile ban in 1918. • A bomb shelter was built on Nantucket for President John F. Kennedy in 1961, and was disguised by the US Navy as a “jetassist takeoff fuel bottle storage area”, but was never used.

• The skeleton of a sperm whale hanging in the Whaling Museum washed up on Nantucket’s Low Beach in 1998. • Work on the State Road to ‘Sconset was begun in 1894. • Peak gusts from Hurricane Bob in 1991 reached 102 miles per hour.

Open Spaces

Picture this: you’re standing at the edge of a salt water inlet, surrounded by tall green reeds and waving grasses. In the near distance, a small, heron-like bird – an egret – patrols the shoreline, while above an osprey returns to its sky-high nest. 80% of the worldwide acreage of sandplain grasslands occur on Nantucket, Tuckernuck, and Martha’s Vineyard.” As the Nature Conservancy points out: “The coastal sandplain ecosystem found on Nantucket and the surrounding Massachusetts Islands is one of the most beautiful and threatened natural systems in the world, with only one percent of its original global acreage still remaining.” UMass/Boston, which operates a scientific field station on the island on land now owned by the Nantucket Conservation Foundation, has this to say about yet another ecological aspect of the island: “Nantucket’s heathlands are unique in eastern North America, including 25 plant and five animal species considered rare, endangered or of special concern.” Nantucket is truly a special place. In many areas, the island appears as it has for thousands of years. It’s not surprising that the Nature Conservancy has named Nantucket one of forty “Last Great Places” on earth. We can thank the foresight and diligence of several conservation organizations for helping safeguard the island’s untamed aspects for future generations to enjoy. Today, thanks to conservation efforts, over 45 percent of Nantucket is preserved in its natural state, with vast open spaces,

You follow a meandering dirt trail through topography you’ve never before encountered: gently rolling moorlands covered with lowlying vegetation – including bayberry, little blue stem, huckleberry, and scrub oak – whose subtle hues and changing colors are as eyepleasing as the terrain is vast. You’re sitting near a high dune with hundreds of feet of fine sand reaching from you to the ocean. An American Oystercatcher works the sand near the shoreline, as do clutches of Sanderlings, who skitter and retreat from each wave, oblivious to your presence. To the left and right, all you see are miles of pristine beach. This is just a sampling of Nantucket’s natural beauty. Although it is a small island, the diversity of its terrain is such that it has long inspired painters, photographers, and those who simply enjoy the serene pleasures of an unspoiled landscape. Nantucket’s landscape is as unique as it is varied. A hallmark feature of Nantucket’s landscape is our sandplain grasslands, for example, described by the Nantucket Conservation Foundation as “relatively flat, open habitats similar to the prairies found in the Midwest,” adding: “It is currently estimated that over

hidden forests, salt marshes, barrier beaches, bogs, and pine barrens forming only a part of the island’s unique terrain. From the sweeping sandy arm of Great Point to the aforementioned sandplain grasslands of the south shore, Nantucket’s natural treasures are both awe-inspiring and fragile. Protecting our natural assets is a top priority. In 1963, the Nantucket Conservation Foundation was founded with the mission of purchasing open space and wildlife habitat to conserve. In 1974, the Nantucket Land Council was founded to conduct the tedious and sometimes controversial advocacy and legal work required to research and clear titles, and shield undeveloped land from dubious claims. In 1983, Nantucketers took the initiative to approve the Nantucket Islands Land Bank, a concept that was the first of its kind in the nation. This ground-breaking legislation enabled the island to enter its own real estate market by levying a two percent fee on most real estate transactions, establishing a “bank” of funds to purchase open space. The Land Bank today oversees more than 2,900 acres of open space, including the public, 18-hole Miacomet Golf Course and 9-hole Old ‘Sconset Golf Course. Special emphasis is devoted to preserving access to the island’s

40 • 2014 Official Guide to Nantucket

beaches. “Our focus is on key waterfront parcels, to make certain the public will have access to these areas,” Land Bank Executive Director Eric Savetsky explains. Included in the Land Bank’s holdings are “dozens of beaches,” Savetsky notes, including the popular Cisco Beach on the south shore. Collectively, the island’s thousands of acres of conservation land keep Nantucket looking pristine and wild. “The island would have an entirely different character if the combined efforts of conservation groups hadn’t been as successful as they have been,” Savetsky continues. The broad stretches of open space, he points out, would be replaced by something more “fragmented” – pockets of land, and not the wide, spectacular swaths that exist today. He credits the early efforts of the Nantucket Conservation Foundation and the Nantucket Land Council for helping lead the way. “The Nantucket Conservation Foundation, having begun its work in the early 1960’s, combined with the Nantucket Land Council’s legal work and public advocacy starting in the early 1970’s, allowed vast tracts of land to be preserved,” he notes. “Today, that would be prohibitively expensive. These conservation efforts helped shape the appearance of Nantucket’s countryside.” Today, the Nantucket Conservation Foundation is the largest conservator of land on the island, and holds over 29 percent of the island’s total land area. But Foundation Executive Director James Lentowski points out that protecting Nantucket is truly a joint effort. “The collaboration between public and private agencies is something you don’t find in other places,” he remarks. The reason for this is that people continue to realize how special Nantucket is. “Nantucket has uncommon natural resources,” Lentowski adds. “I don’t know if you’d find anywhere else that looks like Nantucket.” “And, perhaps most importantly,” he continues, “Nantucketers appreciate what they have. I think the ultimate testimony to the character and natural beauty of Nantucket shows up in every year-round Nantucketer who, after being on the mainland for a time, can’t wait to get home.”

Location, location, location is important both when buying real estate and looking for birds. Nantucket, 26 miles at sea, is a life-ring for migrants, with an open expansive topography that makes it a fantastic destination for birds and “Birding”.

The oft-blessed “Grey Lady” is a birding paradise loaded with an array of feathered creatures much of the year. The absolute prime time is fall and early winter when Nantucket “rocks and rolls” with common migrant birds and more than its share of rarities or wholly unexpected vagrant species. The birding is very different from the mainland, making the island an interesting venue at any time of year. If you’re planning a birding trip, come in the fall – you won’t be disappointed! Approximately half of the island is protected from development by various non-profits and the Nantucket Land Bank. The Nantucket Conservation Foundation is the largest property owner, with over 9,000 acres of moors, heathlands and globally rare sandplain grasslands. Island conservation agencies have a strong history of working together to protect Nantucket and its unique habitats. Virtually all conservation areas are open for birding, as are all island beaches, making the island an unusually friendly and accessible place for birders. The daily commute of Long-tailed Ducks from Nantucket Sound to Nantucket Shoals at dawn and dusk from November through January – an amazing world-class ornithological phenomenon – has been unpredictable for the past two years. If you’re visiting then, call The Linda Loring Nature Foundation at 508-325-0873, as their Senior Naturalist closely monitors the ducks’ routines. A highlight of the birding year is the Nantucket Birding Festival that will run from

October 16-19. Organized and sponsored by The Linda Loring Nature Foundation, the Festival has been successful at turning up significant numbers of birds, as well as unusual species. An impressive group of expert leaders travels here to lead Festival Field Trips and have discovered some amazing birds. In 2011, a Magnificent Frigatebird, Scissor-tailed Flycatcher and Townsend’s Solitaire were spotted. In 2012, the first Gray-tailed Tattler ever seen in eastern North America – only the third in the Lower 48 – was viewed by festival participants. In 2013, the island’s first Calliope Hummingbird – North America’s smallest bird – was discovered. The annual Christmas Bird Count, conducted close to New Year’s Day, is a local highlight and one of the best in New England. Many birders make their annual pilgrimage to the island at this great time of year. Nantucket’s winter birdlife is extraordinary, and its geographic location makes it the best place to view a large variety of gulls and waterfowl hard to find elsewhere in North America. The moderating influence of the surrounding waters enables many semi-hardy landbirds to survive the winter in thickets, making for interesting winter birding. Contact Edie Ray (ACKBIRD@aol.com) or Ken Blackshaw (kenandcindy1@comcast.net) for the date and details. Several island organizations feature guided walks and various programs for birding and natural history. The Linda Loring Nature Foundation offers weekly Birding Field Trips year-round and twice weekly trips during the summer months. The Maria Mitchell Association hosts summer walks, and the Trustees of Reservations offers natural history trips to Great Point and Coatue.

DEER TICK

Awareness

Deer ticks (sometimes called blacklegged ticks) are much smaller than dog ticks, and can be the size of the period at the end of this sentence. On Nantucket and elsewhere, infected ticks can transmit Lyme disease, babesiosis, or ehrlichiosis to an unsuspecting person.

Deer ticks are commonly found in sites where the moisture is high. Take care when walking in woods, marshy areas, tall grass, and along the edges of fields and lawns. If you venture into these areas, walk in the middle of trails and away from bordering shrubs.

Consider wearing protective clothing. Wearing light colored long pants – ideally tucked into high socks, and a long-sleeved shirt – can aid you in spotting ticks. Insect repellents with DEET (diethyltoluamide) will discourage ticks, and those with permethrin will kill them. Use these products with caution.

Ticks in search of a meal can sometimes wander for hours before attaching themselves. Normally, it takes between 24 and 48 hours for an attached infected tick to pass bacteria to its human host. Remove an attached tick by grabbing it at the skin’s surface with pointed tweezers. Avoid squeezing the tick’s body. Clean the bite site with soap and water, and watch for symptoms. If you experience fever, an unexplained rash anywhere on your body, painful joints, swollen glands, or other flu-like symptoms, contact your physician immediately. Tick-borne diseases can be treated effectively with antibiotics; however, an early and accurate diagnosis is crucial.

Deer Tick - Actual Size

Daily tick checks are good insurance. After visiting a “tick friendly” area, always check yourself thoroughly, especially behind the knees and thighs, the back, armpits, groin and hairline. 42 • 2014 Official Guide to Nantucket

40th Daffodil Festival Weekend, April 25 - 27, 2014 April’s gentle sea breezes and warming sunshine coax new growth from the island’s sandy soil, adorning roadsides and gardens with an astonishing array of daffodils in shades of yellow, orange, white and pale pink. Revel in this exuberant celebration of spring by donning your daffodil-themed hat, watching the Antique Car Parade, and indulging in a tasty Tailgate Picnic. On this festive April weekend, remember that it’s “OK to be Daffy!”

Now in its 40th year, Daffodil Festival Weekend on Nantucket is a jubilant celebration of spring’s arrival, punctuated by the blooming of over three million daffodils of various hues, shapes and sizes which grace roadsides, gardens and shop windows. The central event of this delightful weekend is the Antique Car Parade, showcasing over 100 vintage cars bedecked with sunny yellow daffodils and other creative embellishments. Vehicles are staged on Main Street for the public to admire, and all are encouraged to vote for their favorite in the categories of Most Authentic, Best in Show, and the coveted People’s Choice award. At noon, the cars wind through town and onward to the charming village of Siasconset, where participants join residents and visitors for the Annual Daffodil Tailgate Picnic. Held on the lush lawns leading to the village, fare ranges from elaborate gourmet cuisine served on fine china to simple box lunches and burgers. The day’s festivities are rounded out by a family picnic and concert at Children’s Beach, “Daffy” Hat Pageant, Children’s Parade, the Nantucket Garden Club’s Annual Daffodil Show, a Daffodil Festival Marketplace, Window Decorating Contest, and a whimsical “Daffy” Dog Parade! New events are scheduled for 2014, so be sure to check our website, www.nantucketchamber.org for updates. Check out our Daffodil video, which is also available on the Nantucket App for Smartphones: https://vimeo.com/38106241.

What originated in 1974 as a simple floral show sponsored by the American Daffodil Society has evolved into a weekend chock full of events – including raffles, art exhibits, picnics, concerts, walking and bike tours, wine tastings, a used book sale, and even a 5K race! The late Jean MacAusland (former Nantucket summer resident and publisher of Gourmet Magazine) persuaded the Nantucket Garden Club to invite the American Daffodil Society to sponsor a daffodil show on the island. They set a rather impressive goal of planting over one million daffodil bulbs, and began their endeavor along Milestone Road in the autumn of 1974. Unfortunately, many bulbs had been planted in a straight line too close to the road, and were mowed down before they were able to store food for the winter. On their next attempt, the Garden Club set the bulbs in random bunches farther from the road; this “drift planting” afforded some protection, and provided a more natural setting. To enhance the festivities in 1978, Mrs. MacAusland and Nantucketer H. Flint Ranney contrived the first “Annual Nantucket Garden Club Vintage Motor Car Outing”, registering 19 antique vehicles for what has become a beloved island ritual. In 1980, the Chamber of Commerce assumed responsibility for organizing the Antique Car Parade and Tailgate Picnic, and continues to enhance the event, recently adding the popular Daffodil Festival Marketplace as well as a family picnic and concert to the mix.

Fall on Nantucket, September - November 2014

©Michael Galvin

The fall months on Nantucket offer a true respite after the busy summer season. The island’s natural beauty takes center stage, highlighted by crimson-colored landscapes, dramatic surf and sunsets and crisp, cool days.

Fall is one of Nantucket’s best-kept secrets. This season is an ideal time to visit, as summer crowds have dispersed and the island basks in spectacular weather that encourages outdoor pursuits. Nantucket is located along the Gulf Stream, bringing continued warm temperatures in the fall when the island’s natural beauty is at its height, showcased by crimson moors, dramatic surf, and breathtaking sunsets. It’s the perfect time to stroll near-deserted beaches, bike along our many scenic paths, or join a guided walking tour that meanders through secluded byways, replete with historical tidbits and little-known island trivia. Foodies, nature lovers, birders, sports enthusiasts, history buffs and patrons of the Arts will delight in myriad activities and events, including art exhibitions, theater productions, the many-faceted Nantucket Arts Festival (September 30 - October 6), and a flurry of antiques auctions. Nantucket Restaurant Week

48 • 2014 Official Guide to Nantucket

(September 29 - October 5) invites residents and visitors alike to indulge in outstanding food and wine in celebrated island establishments offering special three-course menus and pricing. Other fall events include the Nantucket County Fair, Maritime Festival – heralding the start of Nantucket’s famous scallop season – Nantucket Historical Association’s Historic Harvest Fair, and the Conservation Foundation’s ever-popular Cranberry Harvest Festival. Interestingly, the Windswept Bog on Milestone Road was once the world’s largest natural cranberry bog. In 1959, intensive efforts to conserve water resources resulted in the construction of a complex network of ditches and dikes that subdivide the bog into smaller and more water-efficient units. Arts, berries, biking, birds and more – there’s truly something for everyone to enjoy during this season of splendor.


Nantucket Noel, November 28, 2014 - January 1, 2015 Featuring Christmas Stroll Weekend, December 5-7, 2014

©Katie Kaizer

If you could conjure the quintessential Yuletide experience... cobblestone streets lined with glittering fir trees, strolling carolers in Victorian garb, the scent of wood smoke wafting through a bustling European-style marketplace, Santa greeting wide-eyed children beside a glowing hearth... this picture-perfect backdrop is what makes Nantucket’s annual Christmas Stroll Weekend a truly enchanting experience.

Nantucket Noel begins Thanksgiving weekend with the annual Christmas Tree Lighting and Community Caroling ceremony on Friday, November 28. Main Street – closed to vehicular traffic – teems with locals and visitors alike who gather in anxious expectation as the Town Crier leads the “countdown” and over 150 Christmas trees magically come alive in a blaze of colored light. Joyous caroling fills the air, and the mood is set for a traditional holiday experience. School children, youth groups and local non-profit organizations band together to decorate the trees lining Main Street and surrounding side streets in preparation for the grand events of the following weekend. Now in its 41st year, Christmas Stroll Weekend takes place on December 5-7. Just before noon on December 6, the Town Crier rings in the Stroll at the top of Main Street before heading down to Straight Wharf to meet Santa, arriving with much fanfare aboard a Coast Guard vessel in lieu of the traditional sleigh. A jubilant parade transports the beloved gent to the Jared Coffin House on Broad Street, where he greets eagerly-awaiting children – lists in hand – in a cozy parlor beside a glowing fireplace. Outside, the Town continues to bustle with activity. At the head of Main Street, the Magical

Talking Tree entertains children of all ages while strolling Victorian carolers in period costume fill the air with familiar songs of the season. A charming European-style Christmas Marketplace entices one and all, with mouth-watering aromas and a variety of eclectic wares. While “Strolling”, stop to admire the uniquely decorated windows and doorways of local merchants who vie for coveted ribbons deeming their efforts “most creative” or “most traditional.” Craft shows, exhibitions and performances – including the popular Holiday House Tour on Friday evening – round out this magical weekend where a page from Dickens truly comes to life. Eclectic entertainment abounds, both on the Main Street Stage and throughout Town – from demonstrations of Brazilian martial arts skills (a capoeira) to youth caroling, dancing, and more! Board local buses for a modern version of the “Nantucket Sleigh Ride”, with shuttles conveying shoppers to mid-island venues offering unique activities, live demonstrations, refreshments and terrific offers. Or, you can take your own transportation if you like. Fun and festive events continue throughout the month of December and many island shops, lodgings and restaurants remain open through New Year’s Day as we celebrate “Nantucket New Year’s”. Be sure to make your reservations early, however, as accommodations are often booked well in advance of Stroll or New Year’s Weekends. The “quiet months” of winter are a time to reflect and rejuvenate as you wander along deserted beaches, attend an Art exhibit, enjoy a stellar night of theater, or just relax on a sunny Main Street bench while “watching the pass.” Come and experience the magic that is Nantucket’s off-season.

The joys of getting away from it all are enhanced by the splendid variety of accommodations Nantucket has to offer.

Town also printed a promotional flyer entitled “Nantucket Island an Ideal Health and Vacation Resort.” In 1880, the American tradition of summer vacations was firmly established. And so, nearly two hundred years hence, this magical island remains a premier tourist destination, offering the same relaxation and respite to visitors in search of a singular vacation experience. Many lodgings are converted whaling-era houses where simple elegance and comfort await. This unique charm is enhanced by a canopy bed, perhaps, or freshly-made muffins at breakfast. Innkeepers are eager to share information on restaurants, beaches, biking, and sightseeing. Your escape does not mean you will be cut off from civilization, however. Cable television and WiFi access is readily available. Whether it’s in town, or by the ocean, a stay on Nantucket is a relaxing and refreshing respite from the real world.

From traditional guest houses that line the streets of downtown, to gracious hotels both in and out of town, and summer cottages fronting the shore, lodging on Nantucket is both varied and eclectic. For the first-time visitor, an overnight stay on Nantucket is an experience like no other. For most, that first trip kindles a lasting relationship with the Grey Lady that beguiles, inspiring them to count the days until their return. When the Whaling industry suffered its swift decline in the mid 1800’s, the economy of Nantucket was resurrected by tourism. Commercial shipping gave way to recreational boating, and daily excursions from the mainland on the graceful old steamers brought the first summer visitors. The first generation of “developers” built cottages and summer houses, advertising them in Boston and New York newspapers. Island housewives took in summer boarders – attracting potential guests with “large airy rooms” and “nicely cooked bluefish.” The

ACTIVITIES

Go With The Flow: Riding against traffic on a one-way street can be very dangerous. Nantucket has many one-way thoroughfares, so be careful not to endanger yourself or pedestrians who aren’t expecting you to be riding from that direction Light It Up: Before dawn and after dusk, light up the night with a red blinking rear light and a front light on your handlebars. Reflectors on your wheel spokes are a must as well.

historic, and have hedges that block your view from driveways and crossroads. Sorry, No Headphones: Wearing headphones while biking is not illegal, but it’s not smart, as you should remain alert of traffic, other riders, joggers, and others using our roads and bike paths. Use Your Hands: Use your hand signals to let those around you know where and when you are turning.

Walkers Go First: Pedestrians have the right of way on crosswalks; your bike follows the same rules of the road as a vehicle.

Look ‘Em In The Eyes: Never cross an intersection without a wave or head nod from a driver to insure they see you before you cross in front of them.

Protect Your Brain!: Your head is one of the most important parts of your body; protect it with a helmet at all times.

Watch For Opening Doors: Certain roads are tight in the downtown parking area, so be aware of opening car doors.

Stay Off Sidewalks: When riding in the downtown and mid-island, keep your bike in the road. Nantucket sidewalks are small,

Same Rules Same Roads: Bikes follow the same rules as cars, so please stop at all stop signs and always ride with traffic. www.nantucketchamber.org • 81

Nantucket Arts & Culture

The spirit of Nantucket’s heyday as an artists’ colony continues to thrive, and the boundless creativity the island inspires finds expression in the diverse media of arts, crafts, theatre, dance and film. The past, meticulously preserved in our cobblestone streets and historic architecture, is gracefully displayed in the island’s museums, shops and galleries.

ARTISTIC

T

Pursuits

he arts have flourished on Nantucket for over a century. Both the abundance and diversity of artists and cultural offerings continue to surprise and delight visitors who are initially drawn to this small island by its natural beauty and

timeless historic appeal. Creative endeavors in a multitude of forms enrich the quality of life on Nantucket and are at the heart of what makes the island unique.

Visual Arts

Theater On almost every evening in the summer and at various times throughout the year, theater productions are presented by the Theatre Workshop of Nantucket, Children’s Theatre of Nantucket, Nantucket Dreamland Theater, White Heron Theatre Company, as well as traveling companies.

Lectures

A R T S & C U LT U R E

Inspiration drawn from Nantucket’s physical and spiritual beauty is expressed in every medium possible. The island offers something special for all – an opportunity to experience “art as a way of life,” an integral daily experience like the air we breathe and the clear light that surrounds us thirty miles at sea. The Nantucket Arts Council represents the cultural arts on Nantucket and sponsors the Nantucket Arts Festival each year in the fall. Opportunities to enjoy the island arts’ scene abound throughout the year, especially in high season. In any given week, concerts, lectures, exhibitions, plays, auctions and classes are available to all.

Lectures by well-known authors presented by the Nantucket Atheneum dot the summer calendar, along with programs offered by the Nantucket Historical Association, Maria Mitchell Association, African Meeting House on Nantucket, Egan Maritime Institute, Nantucket Island School of Design & the Arts, and Congregation Shirat HaYam.

The island hosts a variety of visual art displays ranging from formal galleries to individual artist studios, many of which host opening nights with public receptions on Friday evenings. A wide variety of art is available, from paintings, photographs, and sculpture to handicrafts (including the iconic Nantucket Lightship Baskets), furniture, glassworks, scrimshaw, and jewelry.

Art Schools & Classes

Nantucket Dining & Food

Nantucket may be small in size, but when it comes to gourmet dining and sheer variety of restaurant choices, the island may just be the “Holy Grail” for foodies. Indeed, one would be hard pressed to find such an eclectic array of cuisines in an area of less than 50 square miles anywhere!

Island Life

While whalers of yore subsisted on salt cod and hardtack (a nearly indestructible biscuit brought aboard ships because of its unlimited shelf life), the bill of fare on Nantucket today is as far-reaching as the ocean waters that surround it. imaginable. In addition, an impressive variety of full-service event spaces and catering options exist for those planning a wedding reception, anniversary party, special birthday celebration, or any significant event be it large or small. Each year, the island boasts not one, but two Restaurant Weeks in Spring and Fall. Participating restaurants offer special prix fixe menus and Cisco Brewers hosts a popular Fall Junior Chef competition for local culinary arts students, presided over by Jenny Johnson of TV Diner fame. In May, oenophiles venture to Nantucket in droves for the annual Wine Festival, showcasing prestigious vintners from around the globe, and featuring grand tastings, food and wine seminars, cooking demos and a glittering Harbor Gala. In mid-October, the splendid serenity of autumn provides a perfect backdrop for the eagerly-anticipated Cranberry Harvest Weekend. The 195-acre Milestone Bog – one of the few certified organic bogs in the country – is flooded and a crimson tide of ripe cranberries bobs to the surface. Not only is the harvest interesting to watch, the festival also features sheep-shearing demonstrations, hay rides, live music, and hearty lunch fare under the food tents. Native cranberries are available for purchase as jam, or fresh from the bogs, ready to add to your signature compote for the upcoming Thanksgiving feast. Nantucket may be acclaimed for its miles of unspoiled beaches and historic downtown, but the island’s homage to the fruit of both vine and bog, a bi-annual salute to fine dining in June and September, and the sheer variety and number of sensational restaurants islandwide contribute to its enduring allure as a vacationer’s paradise. Come taste what you’re missing! www.nantucketchamber.org • 115

DINING & FOOD

Stroll through the charming, meticulously preserved downtown, and you’ll discover that, on nearly every street there are often two – or more – fine dining venues nestled among historic storefronts and grey-shingled vintage homes. From New Regional American to “Farm to Table” to French to Irish and even Latin, the varied cuisines of Nantucket restaurants are praised by visitors, locals, and exacting restaurant critics for the quality of their diverse fare, imaginative presentation and impeccable service. Owing to its unique location nearly thirty miles at sea and the pristine waters of Nantucket Sound, the island’s local seafood is prized for its freshness and flavor. Native lobster, striped bass, and the inimitable Nantucket scallop – world-renowned for its sweetness – are particular favorites. Clambakes on the beach are de rigueur during the summer, and many visitors opt to take one of the many sportfishing charters to catch their own striped bass, bluefish, bonito, cod, tuna – and even shark – for a unique dining experience as well as a memorable adventure for the entire family. A handful of restaurants are located directly on Nantucket Harbor, and a good deal more are mere steps away to insure a breathtaking view to complement a spectacular dinner. After a leisurely day at the beach, nothing beats toasting a four-star sunset as you and your partner – or the entire family – enjoy a succulent meal and contemplate the agenda for the remainder of your stay. Not only are the abundance of awardwinning gourmet restaurants sufficient enticement to plan your visit...we also have our own winery, brewery and distillery! Add to the mix bakeries, gourmet markets, and takeout restaurants aplenty offering every fare

Nantucket Merchants

A veritable “nirvana” for shopping enthusiasts, Nantucket is home to an impressive array of shops and boutiques to satisfy the most eclectic tastes, from the traditional to the whimsical. As many stores are small and independently owned, you’ll enjoy a rare level of personal attention while you browse for just the right souvenir of your island visit, or a fabulous gift for that special someone back home.

SHOPPING

Nantucket Style

Imagine a place where elegant shops define the downtown, where stylish, hand-carved wooden signs spell out the names of businesses, the night sky is not diminished by the glare of neon, and authentic time-honored crafts abound. a hallmark of the island’s mercantile scene. As has been the case for decades and generations, Nantucket’s distinctive lightship baskets are still carefully and lovingly handcrafted by islanders, as is the scrimshaw that continues a centuries-old tradition brought back to the island by whalers who circumnavigated the world. The island is also renowned for its artists and artisans, including painters, weavers, potters, jewelers and furniture makers, all of whom create one-of-a-kind heirlooms and treasures. It’s not surprising that R. H. Macy (of Macy’s department store fame) was a native Nantucketer and shopkeeper, and that the innovative ideas he brought to the mainland were forged during his early business years on the island. ©Michael Galvin

This atmosphere has prevailed for centuries on Nantucket and remains an integral part of the island’s charm. No, you won’t find modern malls or sprawling megastores here. As islanders and visitors alike will attest, shopping on Nantucket is a personal experience, where shopkeepers pride themselves on attention to detail, and quality is more important than quantity. A stroll along the streets of Nantucket is like stepping back in time. The shops fronting Centre Street, for example, look much the same as they did in the 1800s when they were collectively known as “Petticoat Row” because island women ran the businesses there. Manufacturing on Nantucket continues to carry the definition “made by hand,” and maritime traditions and crafts remain

On An Island

In her introduction to “Sea-Captains’ Houses and Rose-Covered Cottages: The Architectural Heritage of Nantucket Island,” Margaret Moore Booker writes of the late-nineteenth-century visitor who observed that the houses on the island were, “shingled, shangled, shongled, and shungled.” be salvaged by frugal Nantucketers. In many instances, the quarterboard displaying the ship’s name would be reattached to a house or barn. This tradition continues, as houses in all parts of the island often sport newlymade quarterboards hand-hewn by island artisans. Many original quarterboards still exist, most notably in the village of ’Sconset, where cottages named “Shanunga” and “Wanackmamack” welcome visitors. A treatise entitled “Understanding Nantucket’s Architectural Heritage” notes that in the late 1700’s, houses followed the custom of facing south, but as the original settlement of Sherburne grew, they were built with their main façades abutting the street and with narrow side yards in the tradition of the English town. By 1800, exposure to foreign tastes and influences, aided by the decline of the strict Quaker influence that had prevailed during the 18th century, were reflected in the architecture; houses were larger and more elegant, but maintained – for the most part – a closeness to the street and to each other.

©Cary Hazlegrove

While the visitor may have overstated his case a bit, his observation holds true today, as most houses are still framed with cedar shingles – in keeping with Nantucket’s designation as a historic district. While the siding may be simple, homes on the island are anything but plain, and can be found in a variety of sizes, shapes, and styles, from colonial, Georgian, Federal and Greek Revival, to the grand summer houses of today. Two distinct architectural elements have become an integral part of Nantucket’s identity: roof walks and quarterboards. Roof walks dot the rooftops and frame the chimneys of many historic houses around town, and are also an inviting feature of many newer homes. While it is true that whaling era families may have used their walks as lookouts to the nearby harbor, the origin of the roofwalk is more sublime. These platforms were built originally for fire prevention; buckets of sand were kept on top of the house to pour down the chimney in the event of a chimney fire. Today, roofwalks are used as appealing outside decks, offering unmatched views of the town, harbor, ocean, or moors. Quarterboards, some sporting fanciful names, are house identifiers that harken to the island’s maritime past. Ships often wrecked on the dangerous shoals surrounding the island, and the flotsam that washed ashore would

We are proud to represent a diverse group of over 600 businesses from Sconset to Madaket, from every island industry

“As a small business owner, I was anxious to join the Chamber and advertise in their Guidebook. I got involved in a committee and fulfilled a need to give back to my community in ways I couldn’t do on my own. From scholarship program to business mentoring, the Honor Roll Card program and more, I am now doing this in a meaningful way.

Service

Despite its remote location 26 miles at sea, Nantucket’s Police and Fire Departments, Department of Public Works, Coast Guard and Cottage Hospital – among others – are dedicated to insuring your safety and security, while banks, beauty salons, cleaners, landscapers and a host of other home services provide the comforts and conveniences of the mainland. For such a small island, the diversity and scope of services available here are quite extensive. Peruse the following pages – from Accountants to Web Design – for a list of the myriad services and transportation options to suit every imaginable need. Note the five airlines that provide convenient and reliable transportation – both seasonal and year-round – to this far flung sandy outpost, as well as the aircraft charters that service Nantucket from Massachusetts and the tri-state area. If you require an advertising or design agency, no need to travel to a major city... they’re right here. As are appliance repair, animal care, attorneys, insurance agencies, consulting services, investment services, schools and educational opportunities, and so much more. Most impressive are the numerous associations and organizations which contribute to the ongoing vitality of our island

and represent the dedicated, concerted efforts of groups to protect Nantucket Sound, educate about Autism, build homes and provide services for the less privileged, and bring injured soldiers and their families to the island for respite and relaxation, acknowledging their patriotism and heroism in the face of war. Pride in service – and a passionate dedication to the community – are watchwords on Nantucket, whether those who serve are natives or “washashores.” A significant number of organizations and associations – many of which are Chamber members – reflect this strong desire to preserve, as well as improve, the way of life here. Whatever the cause – services for those less fortunate and the disabled, the Arts, our public and private schools – all are committed to offering their time and talents to energize the community and provide resources to those in need. It is truly awe-inspiring that the following organizations are all “watchkeepers” – in one way or another – of the island’s unique character, with an eye toward maintaining its heritage, historic integrity, and singular beauty: Alliance to Protect Nantucket Sound, Nantucket Civic League, Nantucket Historical Association, Nantucket Land Council, Nantucket Planning & Economic Development Commission, ReMain Nantucket, ‘Sconset Beach Preservation Fund, ‘Sconset Trust, Spiritual Heritage Nantucket and Sustainable Nantucket. Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with this section of the Guide and take note of all those responsible for providing services – a multitude of kinds – all important to the viability and vitality of this most unique and wonderful place.

We are proud to represent a diverse group of over 600 businesses from Sconset to Madaket In the coming year, our Chamber celebrates 80 years of serving our island, now representing over 600 businesses, large and small, from Sconset to Madaket. As a state regional tourism council, our Chamber lobbies to return our tax dollars locally, and promotes travel to Nantucket from around the world… all funded without town support. We plan and produce two of the island’s most important annual events: Christmas Stroll and Daffodil Festival, both celebrating their 40th anniversaries this year. Our mission is to improve the island’s economic vitality year-round and help keep your business profitable, whether your customers are mostly visitors or year-round residents. As an entrepreneur and businessperson on Nantucket for more than 20 years, I’m proud to say these are just some of the reasons...

WE ARE THE CHAMBER--JOIN US!” Bill Ferrall, editor of Nantucket Home magazine and new President of Nantucket Island Chamber of Commerce Zero Main Street, Second Floor, Nantucket Island, MA 02554 www.nantucketchamber.org 508-228-3643 www.nantucketchamber.org • 223
