The National Trust for Historic Preservation recently compiled a list of historic bars and featured one of Nantucket’s most iconic bars, The Chicken Box . The original bar was started by Willie House and his wife over 66 years ago. They quickly became famous for the fried chicken, which lead to it’s name “The Chicken Box”. Today the building has had a few additions and changes but maintains the laid back feel of its beginnings. As Packy Norton (co-owner) stated in the article, “At The Chicken Box, everyone is equal, and everyone has a good time.” To learn more and discover the other historic bars on the list click here.
