Wednesday, August 11, 11:00 am – 4:30 pm – Annual Nantucket House and Garden Tour

The Nantucket Garden Club hosts its Annual House and Garden Tour on Wednesday, August 11, from 11 – 4:30.  For more than fifty years, the tour has become the venue to have a glimpse of many historic and new homes and gardens on the island.  Each year a different neighborhood is selected, from ‘Sconset to Monomoy to Brant Point.  The 2010 venue is Cliff Road – Sherburne Turnpike.  Tickets are $40.  A shuttle bus to Cliff Road can be picked up at the Transportation Center on Washington Street. The Garden Club members provide exquisite flower arrangements to compliment the rooms in the homes.  The revenue from this major event supports the local community in conservation projects, local scholarships and provides funding for club educational programs and conference expenses.  For specific information about this year’s tour, you may call The Nantucket Visitor Center/Information Bureau at 508-228-0925, or The Nantucket Chamber of Commerce at 508-228-1700.  You may also call Vicki Livingstone at 626-233-8060, or log on to
