  • “Guiding Light” for NCH

    One of the first questions newcomers to Nantucket ask (after do people live here in the winter? and are there schools on Nantucket?) is often “does Nantucket have a hospital?” The answer, of course, is a resounding YES. And thanks to years of dedication, determination, and dollars raised by generous donors and local residents, in February of 2019 Nantucket Cottage Hospital’s new facilities opened to patients. Thanks to an unprecedented $120 million capital campaign, the largest in Nantucket history, the new hospital was built entirely through private donations: debt-free, using no taxpayer dollars. The post “Guiding Light” for NCH appeared first on Yesterdays Island, Todays Nantucket.

  • Eye on Style: ACK 4170

    If you know the meaning of ACK, either you love Nantucket or you’re a pilot. It was her love of Nantucket that inspired artist and photographer Susan Fairgrieve to start ACK 4170TM four years ago in 2017. Susan and her husband first visited Nantucket in 2000: “My husband and I would always go to The Vineyard. When a friend suggested we visit Nantucket, we thought we’d give it a try. We did, and we never went back to The Vineyard!” The post Eye on Style: ACK 4170 appeared first on Yesterdays Island, Todays Nantucket.

  • Standing up for the North Atlantic Right Whale

    For more than 45 years Jean Rioux has advocated for the North Atlantic Right Whale and legislation to protect it. She has spent countless summers set up day and night on Main Street or Federal Street offering education, facts, and ways to help. Jean has collected thousands of signatures and shared her passion with each person signing. When COVID-19 struck the island last year, Jean was undeterred. The post Standing up for the North Atlantic Right Whale appeared first on Yesterdays Island, Todays Nantucket.

  • Celebrating and Preserving Our Seafaring History

    Nantucket is not without its fair share of history, and much of that resides in the many museums and island institutions we love. Being 30 miles out to sea, the ocean is very much a part of our story, which is why we are grateful to have the Egan Maritime Institute. The post Celebrating and Preserving Our Seafaring History appeared first on Yesterdays Island, Todays Nantucket.
