Historic Churches, Settlements, & Homes
“These old buildings do not belong to us and us only; that they have belonged to our forefathers, and they will belong to our descendants unless we play them false. They are not in any sense our property, to do as we like with. We are only trustees for those that come after us. William Morris, 1889”
Explore the classic New England harbor towns of Edgartown, Oak Bluffs, and Vineyard Haven, each with their own distinct flavor. Savor the “quiet simplicity” of the up-island communities of West Tisbury, Chilmark, Aquinnah, and Menemsha. Each of these communities has their own flavor and history. Learn more about these properties at mvpreservation.org
“The five lighthouses on the Island of Martha’s Vineyard represent the most diverse group in a small, contained area in the country, according to lighthouse buffs. All of the lighthouses look out over Vineyard Sound and Nantucket Sound, and over the entrance to Edgartown Harbor and Cape Poge.”Learn more about them at MVY.com
