The Nahant Historical Society Board of Directors has come to the conclusion that it has a responsibility to NHS members and the people of Nahant to speak out clearly against further expansion by Northeastern University at East Point. East Point is a Natural Resource District under the Town’s By-Laws, and has been for nearly 30 years. If further expansion is allowed, that will be a historic decision which will negatively impact the future of East Point’s landscape, and that of our town, for future generations.
The mission of the Nahant Historical Society is not only to look back at the history of Nahant but also to look forward and speak out against decisions which may have a significant impact upon the cultural and historical direction of Nahant in the future. The Society is tasked to preserve the town’s past for the benefit of future generations. We must keep the essential being of our town...our history, our scenic beauty, our sense of community.
