'Sconset: House By House Second Printing
’Sconset: House by House explores the evolution of the village’s eighteenth- and nineteenth-century fish houses and early twentieth-century cottages. Nowhere is in America in there a community quite like ’Sconset. Beautifully preserved as a seasonal retreat overlooking the Atlantic at Nantucket Island’s east end, ’Sconset retains most of its early structures as well as its original village layout and scale. This book reveals the history of more than sixty of these historic houses–all located in the village’s core area on Front, Broadway, Center, and Shell Streets. It is illustrated with nearly 250 images capturing past occupants and views of historic ’Sconset.
Author and former NPT Executive Director Michael May‘s research digs deep to uncover the often untold stories of some of the island’s most iconic houses.
