Petitioning Nantucket Board of Selectmen

Save Martins Lane

In May the Superior Court overturned the Nantucket Board of Selectmen's affirmation of the Historic District Commission’s decision to protect historic Martins Lane, and without an appeal this charming one-block street in the heart of Nantucket’s historic core will be changed forever. Martins Lane is a destination and landmark in itself and we believe its historic elements and the street setting in general are features that help make the island special and are worth protecting for today and future generations.
