The Chicken Box Description
50 years ago, Willie House, a young black man from Kentucky, and his wife arrived on Nantucket, where they were employed as domestic servants for a wealthy Nantucket summer family. The ambitious Willie remodeled a small, vacant shack for the purpose of purveying southern fried chicken. He called it the Chicken Box. As the business prospered, Willie made the decision to bring live band entertainment to the Island. The Chicken Box soon became known as a Nantucket hot spot for Jazz and Blues.
