My Trip to Nantucket - 2006

Arriving Nantucket by ferry - greeted by the lighthouse in the harbor!

We stayed in our "family home" - the Jared Coffin House.

The oldest house on Nantucket, the Jethro Coffin House.

The Old Mill, Built in 1746 by Nathan Wilbur, a Nantucket sailor who had spent
time in Holland, the "Old Mill" is the oldest functioning mill in the country.

(The mill blades are under restoration.)

The Quaker Meeting House: In 1701 Mary Coffin Starbuck became interested in the faith of the Quakers after hearing itinerant Quaker preacher John Richardson speak before a crowd of Nantucketers.It was in her house, situated now at 10 Pine Street, that early Quaker meetings took place. In the years after 1708, the Nantucket Meeting outgrew a series of meetinghouses, the largest being the Great Meeting House on the site of the Quaker Burial Ground at the end of Main Street.

The Whaling Museum was fantastic, too many photos to show you, but here is a whale skeleton and whaling boat.
