Madaket (also Madaquet, Maddaket, Maddequet, Madeket, or Mattaket) is a census designated place (CDP) in Nantucket, Massachusetts, United States. Its elevation is 26 feet (8 m) on the western end of the island. The various spellings of its name led the Board on Geographic Names to designate its official spelling in 1966.[1] It is also home to the Madaket Ditch, one of the earliest public works projects in America.
