First a fishing outpost and then an artists' colony—Broadway actors favored it in the late 19th century—Siasconset (or ’Sconset, in local vernacular) is a charming cluster of rose-covered cottages linked by driveways of crushed clamshells; at the edges of town, the former fishing shacks give way to magnificent sea-view mansions. The small town center consists of a market, post office, café, lunchroom, and a combination liquor store–lending library.
