87 Main is a landmark known as the Sarah Gardner Clark House, built in 1830. Its attractive curb appeal and charming interior have made it a favorite of annual Historic District House Tours, and it has been featured in many prominent lifestyle publications. It was one of the original yellow houses in Nantucket, the inspiration for the Historic Commission's approved color now known as Main Street Yellow. 87 Main is located on the cobblestones in the heart of Nantucket's historical district, only a couple houses away from the historically renowned Three Brick homes. Impeccably maintained, including a new roof, central air, boiler, hot water tank, and a new oil tank, all installed between 2009-2011.
