'Sconset

Located on the eastern end of Nantucket, Siasconset started as a fishing village in the 17th century. By the 1800s it had become a whaling station. With the decline of whaling, 'sconset became a summer retreat for an acting colony. Today it is just a summer retreat for the wealthy.

Sankaty lighthouse is near by.
