"Madaket Millie" Jewett, a Nantucket legend, spent her life caring for the beaches, the animals and the people of Madaket. Reserved, yet strong-minded, Millie embodied the self reliant spirit of native islanders. She was beloved by locals and visitors alike, always willing to help people in need. Millie patrolled the coastline and watched for shipwrecks, earning her the highest civilian rank from the US Coast Guard. She sold ice cream, greeted passersby from her yard on Hither Creek, and developed a close friendship with Mr. Rogers, among others. We hope to carry on Millie's commitment to and passion for Madaket by offering a gathering place for visitors - old and new - to experience this unique part of Nantucket.
