My family went up to the top and the pictures they snapped overlooking all of Nantucket were beautiful. I stayed in the church and listed to the organist play beautifully.

It seems a bit odd to be reviewing a church. The view from the tower is amazing and well worth the donation fee. It is also interesting to see parts of the renovations that have taken place over the years. The grounds are beautiful, too.

This is an beautiful and iconic church just off of downtown Nantucket. It's large and visible from just about anywhere, so it's easy to find! Also a great photo op.

The view from the tower is spectacular. They provide binoculars, maps, and a docent at the top of the tower. There is also a history display part way up.

Attended once, for a special prayer group in a good sunny Saturday, simple and traditional protestant house of prayer.
