about Nantucket

Nantucket is an island south of Cape Cod, Massachusetts, formed of glacial moraine. Together with the small islands of Tuckernuck and Muskeget, it constitutes the town of Nantucket, Massachusetts and the coextensive Nantucket County. It was formerly the leading whaling port in the world. Although now primarily a tourist destination, it still houses a small fishing industry. The town of Surfside on Nantucket is the southernmost town in New England. Nantucket also is the root of the famous limerick: "There once was a man from Nantucket..."

Nantucket geography

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, Nantucket County has a total area of 786 km² (304 mi²). 124 km² (48 mi²) of it is land and 663 km² (256 mi²) of it is water. The total area of the county is 84.25% water. The area of Nantucket Island proper is 123.8 km² (47.8 mi²).

Nantucket history

Nantucket was part of Dukes County, New York until 1691, when it was transferred to Massachusetts and made its own county.

Along with the island of Martha's Vineyard, Nantucket voted in 1977 to secede from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. The secession movement was sparked by a proposed change to the Massachusetts Constitution, which would cut eighty members from the 240-strong state House of Representatives, reducing the islands' representation. Needless to say, the movement was not carried to fruition, as the islands remain a part of Massachusetts.

45 miles south of Nantucket on July 25, 1956, the Italian ocean liner SS Andrea Doria sank after colliding with the SS Stockholm in heavy fog. 51 were killed in the crash but none lost their lives in the sinking.

On October 31, 1999, EgyptAir Flight 990 traveling from New York City to Cairo crashed off the coast of Nantucket, killing all 217 on board.
