New ’Sconset Trust Publication: Building with ’Sconset in Mind

We are delighted to announce the publication of Building With ’Sconset in Mind, by Michael May. This landmark publication provides building recommendations that apply specifically to ’Sconset and its individual neighborhoods, supplementing the Historic District Commission’s Building with Nantucket in Mind, published in 1978 and updated in 1995. We thank the numerous individuals and organizations who contributed to the content. This book will be shared with various governmental and nonprofit groups and will be available for purchase through the ’Sconset Trust.

’Sconset Trust Purchases 6 Elbow Lane, the Captain Valentine Aldrich House

Small shingled cottage with large bushes

In an effort to preserve the commercial ’Sconset core, which is central to our village way of life, and facilitated by significant financial support from a number of ’Sconset families, the Trust was able to purchase this strategically situated property. Located behind the ’Sconset Market, it will provide desperately needed rental housing for the village workforce, as well as secure a key historical property in the heart of Siasconset.

Gully Road Update

The removal of the felled trees and debris at our newly acquired property, bordering Gully Road and Ocean Avenue, will begin this week. A remediation plan to deal with the aftermath of the tree removal is being developed by Wilkinson Designs in conjunction with the Conservation Commission, the Land Bank, and the ‘Sconset Trust.
