The Quaker House

The Quaker House

The original owner of the home was William Ray, a cooper (barrel maker) who came to Dartmouth as part of a community of Quakers who established a whale fishing industry. The Quaker House has since been restored and furnished to reflect its 1785 construction date. It well represents the Nantucket Island domestic architecture from the time of its original construction.
