    Joan Wilson-Godeau started coming to
    Nantucket at the age of four when her parents
    worked for a family that owned an estate in
    ‘Sconset. Eventually, her family settled on island
    in a tiny neighborhood, which came to be known
    as Codfish Park.
    There are very few personal stories about this
    gem on the eastern end of the island or about the
    initially residents that made it a community.
    Research states, “... domestics saw opportunity
    in Nantucket and managed to stay, some in New
    Guinea and others in a new settlement “under the
    Bank” in ‘Sconset—a neighborhood that came to
    be called Codfish Park.”
    Come and listen to Joan as she shares personal
    narratives on her childhood days, the families
    that made this gem a community, and hear of the
    many changes she has seen as a resident of
    Codfish Park. This event will surely be insightful
    for all ages, bring a friend.
