Preserving and Protecting
Nantucket’s Open Spaces

Conservation, recreation and agriculture for the benefit of the public in perpetuity

The Nantucket Land Bank was created by a 466-to-1 vote of annual Town meeting
in 1983. Since inception, as the first of its kind in the nation, it has served as a model
for other communities across the country. For over 30 years, we have worked to
acquire, hold and manage key open spaces, provide waterfront access, preserve
scenic views, protect ecological resources, promote local agriculture and create
outdoor recreational opportunities for residents and visitors alike.
