Nantucket (the Wampanoag word for “faraway land”) was originally inhabited by the Wampanoag Indians who lived there until 1641. At that time the English deeded the island to Thomas Mayhew and merchants from Watertown and Martha’s Vineyard. Thomas Mayhew in turn sold his interest to “nine original purchasers” – Tristram Coffin, Thomas Macy, Christopher Hussey, Richard Swayne, Thomas Bernard, Peter Coffin, Stephen Greenleafe, John Swayne and William Pike – for the sum of thirty pounds and also two beaver hats–one for him and one for his wife. Nantucket was the Whaling Capital of the World from 1800-1840 and then in 1880 turned to tourism as her major source of income.
Below are some sites you can see around the island today.
