We believe every historic Nantucket house has a story. For this reason one of our homeowner programs offers you the opportunity, to learn the history of your historic house. The story of your Nantucket house will be preserved in our island’s history. As part of the Nantucket Preservation Trust’s educational mission, copies of the histories produced are presented to the Nantucket Historical Association and the Nantucket Atheneum for inclusion in their research collection. Below is the Brief House History of 71 Baxter Road – one of the island’s mid-twentieth century structures.
