Our Sense of Place Exhibition and Auction is now online! Bidding closes August 9th. Featuring more than thirty artists and craftspeople, the Sense of Place exhibition and auction is a carefully curated selection of one-of-a-kind works of art and experiences inspired by Nantucket’s unique sense of place.

Each year, we look forward to our Annual August Fête as a celebration of the architectural heritage we are working to preserve and our incredible supporters who help make that work possible.

This year, we will hold There’s No Place Like Home, a virtual gathering, on Thursday, August 6th at 7:00 pm and silent auction to help support the ongoing work of NPT.

This year’s Fête features pre-recorded house tours and a live question-and-answer session with homeowners, builders, architects, and other preservation experts. The tours feature prior recipients of NPT’s Preservation Awards, as well as historic properties with preservation easements (the highest level of preservation protection). The tours are now available for Fête supporters to view. The homes showcased in this year’s Fête are restoration role models to the Nantucket community, and we can’t wait to share them with you!
