House Profiles

The house and barn at 28 Main Street, Siasconset, with two men, two women, and a pony out in front.

Homeowners can commission the Trust to prepare a House Profile of their property to highlight the record of ownership and significant historical events relevant to their house as well as the important architectural features and the evolution of the house. The Trust believes that emphasizing these features will encourage current and future owners of historically significant houses to preserve important interior and exterior building features for future generations.

One way to preserve these features in perpetuity is through the use of Preservation Restrictions and Conservation Restrictions, which serve to protect defined elements of a structure and/or property for the enjoyment of future generations. The Trust stands ready to assist homeowners in assessing the appropriateness of tools like preservation restrictions and rights of first refusal, which may include tax benefits. We currently hold Preservation Restrictions on Atlantic House and The Siasconset Union Chapel and a Conservation Restriction on Hedged About.

For more information on how the Trust can help, please contact us.

Hard copies of these House Profiles may be viewed at the Trust’s office or at the Nantucket Historical Association.

The Nantucket Preservation Trust has also prepared reports on several Sconset homes, all of which can be viewed at the Nantucket Historical Association.  These reports include:

  • 71 Baxter Road – NHA
  • 11 Broadway – NHA
  • 2 Lily Street – NHA
  • 22 Main Street – NHA
  • 27 Main Street – NHA
  • 34 Main Street – NHA
