Swept Away: Discovering Nantucket’s Culture of Island Collecting
EVENTS > SOJOURNS
September 4–8, 2024
Go coastal with the Trust as we expand our appreciation for maritime studies, historic preservation, and island collecting during this Nantucket Sojourn. A prized New England summertime haven, this tiny island’s big personality ranges from Quaker roots and a whaling history to grand Greek Revival edifices and conspicuous consumption of exotic goods. We explore the island’s significant maritime way of life and artistic legacies, lending to embroidered narratives, a distinctive culture, and the lore of Moby Dick. Surrounded by sea and sky, this September excursion showcases Nantucket’s dreamy views and deep traditions of trade, travel, and tourism.
Registration will open in the spring of 2024. As with all our programs, members at the Ambassador and Champion levels receive first opportunity to register. For updates, sign up for our email list and follow us on Facebook and Instagram.
