In conjunction with our Boston Post Cane exhibit this summer the Vinalhaven Historical Society presented Capt. Nathaniel W. James III with a plaque in recognition for being the oldest citizen of Vinalhaven. Capt. Nat is 99 years young (born 3/16/1916)! Although he is currently in an assisted living facility in Scarborough, ME, his 6 children make sure he visits his Vinalhaven home as often as possible. Capt. Nat and his wife Alex started coming to Vinalhaven in the early 1970s, buying a house here shortly after. In 1976, he got a job as manager of Fox Islands Electric Co. Since then, they have considered Vinalhaven their home.
