Item Information

Title:
Map of the island of Nantucket, including Tuckernuck
Description:
The island of Nantucket is home to the easternmost site cared for by The Trustees. Coskata-Coatue Wildlife Refuge, located on two peninsulas on the northeast coast of the island, is both a popular destination for vacationers and fishermen, as well as endangered bird species like the Northern Harrier, piping plover, least tern and oystercatcher. The 1838 map by Nantucket astronomer William Mitchell displayed here lists the area as "Coatue" and "Croskaty Pond," names deriving from two Wampanoag terms given by the island's original Native American inhabitants. Early 17th-century settlers established themselves in the interior of the island rather than on the coast.
