Founded in 1884, the Nantucket Historical Association (NHA) has worked to preserve the cultural and historical artifacts of this unique island off the coast of Massachusetts for over 135 years. Their website contains information on their whaling museum, special events, and research library. First-time visitors will want to click on the "Exhibitions" area to get started. The digital exhibitions here include portraits of notable Nantucket women, a journal from the wife of a sea captain written in the mid-19th century, and a look at the Nantucket Art Colony. Historians will want to look at the "Research Library" area as well, as it contains an online database and information about their extensive oral history collections. Visitors should also look at the "Explore Nantucket History" area, as they can sign up to receive their quarterly magazine (there is a charge) and they can also look at select articles for free.
