Siasconset is a census designated place (CDP) at the eastern end of Nantucket island, Massachusetts, United States with an elevation of 52 feet (16 m), and a population of 205 at the 2010 census. Although unincorporated, the village has a post office, with the ZIP code 02564.The various spellings of its name, Sconset, Sconset, Seconset, Siasconsett, or Sweseckechi led the Board on Geographic Names to designate its official spelling in 1892.HistoryThe area was settled as a fishing village in the 17th century. The core of one of the older fishing shacks known as "Auld Lang Syne" is believed to date from the 1670s, but was moved around several times from its original foundation. Various other cottages date from the 18th and 19th centuries. Many of the houses were haphazardly added onto contributing to the unique look of these Nantucket cottages.In the 19th century a whaling station was present in the village. In 1877 Edward Underhill from Wolcott, New York bought land in the village and constructed cottages in the fashion of the original fishing shacks and then rented them to summer tourists.In the early 20th century it was a summer retreat for an Actor's Colony which included Digby Bell, George Fawcett, Joseph Jefferson, Charles Penrose, Hassard Short, William H. Thompson and his wife Isabel Irving, DeWolf Hopper, Frank Gillmore and his daughters Ruth and Margalo Gillmore, among others.Siasconset is in Nantucket.
