Nantucket Historical Association (NHA)

Keeping the island's history alive is the goal of the Nantucket Historical Association. Many of the museums and historical sites on Nantucket fall under the NHA's umbrella, which makes it an excellent place to start when taking a tour of the island. Purchase a membership to receive admission to all of the NHA's sites and immerse yourself in the island's past. Individual memberships provide far more benefits other than just museum entrance fees.

Brant Point Light Station

One of the most photographed lighthouses in the United States, Brant Point Light Station is Nantucket Island's historic landmark. Though this iconic structure was established in 1746, it underwent numerous alterations through the ages, with its overall automation being one of the most notable events in its long and illustrious history. Armed with a powerful 5th-generation Fresnel lens, its signals have the capability of traveling distances up to 19 kilometers (12 miles). The monochromatic wooden tower that one sees today was built in the year 1901, and sits at Brant Point surveying all ferries, yachts and cruises from the mainland that pass its picturesque side on their way into the harbor.

Martha's Vineyard Museum & Historical Society

The Martha's Vineyard Museum and Historical Society is devoted to the history and culture of this small Massachusetts island.

Today, the museum and society are housed in historical buildings that are wonderful to walk through. Visitors to this museum can trace back their ancestry through the Historical Society's extensive genealogical services. There are special exhibits, classes, seminars, workshops, and movies hosted here throughout the year.

Madaket Beach

Madaket Beach is known for its spectacle sunsets, perfect for a photo or just enjoying the moment. Of course, plenty of visitors and residents alike head to Madaket during regular beach hours for sunbathing and swimming. Please note, surf can be heavy at times and the lifeguards are on duty seasonally. These lovely beach is even accessible via the Madaket Bike Path, which runs 5.5 miles (8.9 kilometers) from town.

Historic District

The buildings in the Historic District of Nantucket reflect all the charm of an old New England town. It is here where every nook, every alleyway, and every antiquated cottage coyly croons the secrets of the neighborhood's storied past. Its ocean-side Historic District is touted to be one of the oldest in the country. Although the dainty, wood-built buildings may not be the most scenic, their very fabric weaves together stories which date back as far as the 17th Century, some also lending insights into the Civil War. At this olden district, modest, pastel-hued shops, bed and breakfast inns, and traditional restaurants lie strewn across the winding, cobbled lanes, as well as Main Street, a major thoroughfare of the area. Mornings spill into afternoons at this antiquated quarter which is a heartwarming slice of American history. Since cars are discouraged in the laid-back quarter, Nantucket is a pleasant zone traversed only by cycles, bikes, and mopeds.

Sankaty Head Light

The renowned Sankaty Head Light is a prominent lighthouse which is constructed on the Nantucket Island in Siasconset, Massachusetts. This 60-foot (18-meter) lighthouse was first lit in the year of 1850 and it is still operational, though now it is automated. The towering lighthouse was incorporated in the National Register of Historic Places in 1987. The grounds are open to the public, but visitors can not enter the lighthouse.
