Go coastal with the Trust as we expand our appreciation for maritime studies, historic preservation, and island collecting during this Sojourn in Nantucket, MA. A prized New England summertime haven, this tiny island’s big personality ranges from Quaker roots and the whaling industry to grand Greek Revival edifices and the conspicuous consumption of exotic goods. Alongside Trust Governor and Winterthur Professor Emeritus Brock Jobe, we explore the island’s way of life, artistic legacies, distinctive culture, and the lore of Moby Dick. Surrounded by sea and sky, this Sojourn showcases Nantucket’s dreamy views and deep traditions of trade, travel, and tourism.
