This is a view of downtown Nantucket looking southeast. The building in the center is the Rotch Market, built in 1775. In 1842, the first floor was occupied by the Commercial Insurance Company and across the street were the offices of Citizen's Bank. The buildings in the foreground are the Gardner-Coffin warehouse and the Macy-Hussey warehouse. The buildings bordered on the square at the lower end of Main Street. The area from the square to the wharves was filled with warehouses and businesses relating to the maritime industries of the island, most notably, whaling.
This entire section of town, including a large portion not pictured, was destroyed by fire in 1846. The fire began a decline in the fortunes of the island which has recently been reversed by the tourist industry. - CB

ABOUT EMAILING FOR PRICE:
1. Once an item is "sold out" and only available thru "secondary" or "resale" sources, pricing can vary day by day or hour by hour as resales occur. In such instances, the prices you see on our website may represent the last of those items sold as opposed to today's price. That is why we often tell you to "email" for pricing. And that is why prices often change without notice.
2. We apologize that there are some artists who do not allow on-line listings of their prices.
In either event, when you email for pricing, we ask that you include your location and phone number in order to get back to you during appropriate hours so we can accomodate the needs of people different time zones. We do not share your information with anyone. If you don't hear back from us within 24 hours, please check your spam folder or feel free to call us at 440-255-1200 / 800-621-1141.
If you are having difficulty using our "email for price" forms, please call us or switch to another internet browser (Chrome, Edge, Firefox, etc.)
