Here's a great holiday gift for anyone interested in Nantucket's history, preservation or the stories behind our historic buildings. The Neighborhood Book Series was created to serve as a reminder that the stories of a house and the people who lived there must be told if we are to understand and preserve Nantucket's historic resources.
Off Centre: the Wesco Acre Lots, is a history of Nantucket's earliest subdivision. Laid out in 1678 the lots are bounded by what are now Liberty, Hussey, Quince and India Streets. Off Centre presents detailed research illustrated with historic images and maps. A must for the connoisseur of Nantucket architecture and history.
