Edward Fitch Underhill, Renaissance Man of Siasconset

Edward Finch Underhill

 Edward Fitch Underhill arrived in Siasconset in the summer of 1879 and fell in love with the little fishing village on the eastern bluff of Nantucket Island.  Fascinated by the diminutive, haphazard architecture of the ancient fishermen's houses, Underhill created his own enclave of nineteen small and quirky cottages that remain today a testament to his idea of the perfect summer getaway.  This is the lastest publication by the Nantucket Historical Association, written by Margaret Moore Booker.
