Garden of Gale H. Arnold

Nantucket, MA
Open Days

The gardens at 110 Wauwinet Road are reflective of its place in time, architecture, and utility. Tree, shrub, and perennial plantings are integrated into the natural landscape. Walkways and lawn space allow for free movement throughout and provide a clear view of the inner harbor and sunset. A collection of scented plants and fruit grow inside the 18th-century-style glass house. An enormous native oak, typical of Wauwinet, dominates the back of the Queen Anne-style residence.

Directions: From town, get on Milestone Road and turn left at Island Lumber (Polpis Road). At end of Polpis Road, turn left onto Wauwinet Road. As you pass gatehouse to Great Point area, make an immediate left at #110 (see huge numbered rock) or park in gatehouse lot.
