NISDA’S SEAVIEW FARM
WE HAVE FANTASTIC NEWS!
NISDA’S SEAVIEW FARM WILL BE FOREVER PROTECTED!
RESTORATION AT SEAVIEW FARM
We recently finalized a Preservation Easement with the Nantucket Preservation Trust which will insure Seaview Farm at 23 Wauwinet Road will forever retain it’s historic integrity and is featured in NTP’s annual publication Ramblings 2021. You can read all about it by clicking this link: https://www.nantucketpreservation.org/resources/the-fanlight/
NISDA would like to thank the Community Preservation Committee members for their continued vote for financial support to restore the Historic Seaview Farm, enabling NISDA to preserve the last of the Dairy Barns on the Island! The CPC Funding will continue to help NISDA maintain the historic structures so Artists and the Community at Large can continue to enjoy our facilities and programming.
THE LONG SHED CERAMICS STUDIO
The Ceramics Studio is being fully restored and is a joy to behold! New roof, Shingles AND awesome new Large Sliding Barn Doors and French Drain to help channel Eat Fire Spring which is just behind the building. We have just poured a beautiful new floor and are planning to order new Potting Wheels and equipment! It will be so wonderful to be back creating sculptures and throwing pots!
Thanks to all who have created and studied at NISDA, contributing time, talent, vital resources and encouragement over the years. Looking forward to seeing you as we transition into a new era!
WHEN MAINTENANCE BECOMES
EMBRACING A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE
In 2018, an Amish family from northern Maine restored our Historic Seaview Farm Silos with a Nantucket Community Preservation Act Funds granted by the CPC, Community Preservation Committee.
