Evelyn joined the Herreshoff Marine Museum in 2016 as a Collections Specialist working closely with Registrar, Archivist and Librarian Norene Rickson on the digitization of the museum’s collection, a critical strategic initiative geared to capture high resolution digital images for the dual purposes of preservation and accessibility by the public. Prior to joining HMM, Evelyn was involved with similar projects at highly-regarded institutions including the Vasa Museum in Stockholm, the Cooper-Hewitt Museum in New York, and the MIT Museum in Cambridge. While at MIT, Evelyn was instrumental in the development of the Herreshoff exhibit titled “Lighter, Stronger, Faster”. ⠀

Cisco

Sponsor

Nantucket Vineyard was the first arm of our business opening in the early 1980’s as a small project of the Long Family.  After a few years, Winery employees ended up falling in love with the wine and each other, and voila! – Cisco Brewers was born on the Hudson’s stovetop in 1995.  Whispers of a brewery floated on the Nantucket wind, catching the ear of a few people, including a Mr. Harman.  Using the previously tested and proven formula of starting a business from another business, Winery and Brewery employees enjoyed a few glasses / pints (respectively) together and hatched the idea for Triple Eight Distillery in 2000.   All three businesses are constantly evolving, and we now produce a wide variety of world-class wines, beers, and spirits.  Come out and enjoy our Nantucket haven- just prepare yourself in case your mind blows up from all the awesomeness.
