Tuck't In is a who's who of Nantucket history!

The chronicles include whaling captains, mariners lost at sea, merchants, writers, artists, educators, Civil War veterans and prisoners. Nantucket notables such as a congressman, distinguished astronomer and Nobel Prize recipient are all buried at Prospect Hill.
The chronicles emanate from diaries, personal letters, memoirs, historic and contemporary images, newspaper accounts and extensive historical research. There is intricate mapping of the property with full maps and reference by chronicle. There is an index by name and by lot number. Numerous accounts have the subject's own voice or a contemporary of the individual recounting the narrative.
