Nantucket Historical Association (NHA)
The Nantucket Historical Association (NHA) is the principal repository of Nantucket history, with extensive archives, collections of historic properties and art and artefacts that broadly illustrate Nantucket's past. The Research Library at the NHA contains a rich collection of primary and secondary sources that document all facets of Nantucket's cultural, social, economic and spiritual history for more than three centuries. More than 400 manuscript collections relate to Nantucket individuals and families, ships, businesses and trades, churches, schools and organizations. Searchable inventories of the library's manuscript, map and book holdings can be accessed via the NHA website. The NHA art and artefacts collections include paintings, drawings, prints, baskets, silver, whaling tools, scrimshaw, furniture and textiles. The particular strengths of the collection lie in artefacts that document Nantucket's whaling industry.
