About the NHA Collections

The Nantucket Historical Association Research Library is a special collections repository of primary resources focusing on Nantucket history.

Our collections contain more than 5,000 volumes and 50,000 photographs, as well as archival documents such as ship's logs, account books, family papers, and scrapbooks.

The NHA also preserves extensive art and artifact collections relating to all periods of Nantucket history. These are displayed at the Whaling Museum and the NHA’s various historic properties.
