Paul McCarthy Master Woodcarver originally from Scituate has been leaving his mark on Nantucket for the past 16 years. From his famous eagle carvings, 1000's of quarterboards and business signs to the famous "Going on the Whale" carving that adorns the Whaling Museum. You can visit Paul at his new shop where he continues to keep the tradition of woodcarving alive with his business partner Folk Artist, Jean Petty.
The Town of Nantucket is a 50 square mile island located in Nantucket Sound waters and was founded in 1671.
Those who visit should do excellent preparing so they will make it on time for the different festivals that occur each month during the summer and all year round. The Daffodil Festival takes place in April. In May there is a Wine Festival followed by the Film Festival that occurs in June. During the month of August the Sand Castle & Sculpture Day takes place.
All of these festivals are fun for children and/ or adults. All year round the community has something for everyone in Nantucket. Come join us for some fun!
