Founded fifty years ago, the Nantucket Conservation Foundation has acquired a stunning collection of lands including the Middle Moors, Sanford Farm and Squam Swamp. The most recent purchase was Norwood Farm, which is a 113 acre property adjacent to the Middle Moors.
The Nantucket Island Land Bank, established 30 years ago and continues to grow and has managed to assemble 2,925 acres for the purpose of keeping lands open for public enjoyment. The Land Bank’s growth is funded by a two percent Land Bank fee that is paid by sellers on all real estate transactions. Based on the Land Bank’s activity it is fair to assume that their 10% stake in the island will grow upwards of 20% over the next thirty years.
Our additional conservation groups include: Massachusetts Audubon, Nantucket Land Council, Linda Loring Foundation, ‘Sconset Trust, Trustees of Reservations and the Madaket Conservation Land Trust. These additional organizations manage over 2,643 acres.
So when you are looking for land on Nantucket keep in mind that our supply continues to be converted to conservation lands which is a benefit for all to enjoy. - Bill Liddle
