PLAN Nicole Friedler 4 Martha’s Vineyard Chamber of Commerce

Whether you’re visiting the Island for the first time, are a regular, are coming for the day or a month, there are many resources available to help you plan a perfect experience! mvy.com/plan GETTING HERE Because Martha’s Vineyard is an island, the first thing you need to do is figure out how you’re getting here. And you’ve got two choices: boat or plane, unless you plan on swimming. FERRY Year-round ferry service is provided 365 days by the Steamship Authority in Woods Hole (a charming little village in Cape Cod, MA), and they are the only ferry service that is equipped to bring vehicles over to the Island – so if you plan on having your car with you, you must reserve a space with the Steamship Authority well in advance of your trip, since there is only a limited number of cars that can come over on each ferry. Seasonal ferry service for passengers only is available from mid-May into the fall from Falmouth, Hyannis and New Bedford in Massachusetts; North Kingston, Rhode Island; New York City; and Northern New Jersey. See all Ferry Service Starting on Page 9. PLANE Cape Air flies year-round and direct from Martha’s Vineyard to Boston’s Logan Airport and NYC’s JFK Airport. Seasonal service is available from Hyannis and Nantucket Massachusetts; Providence, RI; Westchester, New York; and Washington D.C. Jet Blue, Delta, and American Airlines also offer seasonal service direct from JFK in New York. See all Air Travel Page 17. PRIVATE TRAVEL Looking for more exclusive travel options? Private car service is a great stress-free option to whisk you away to any of the ferry Do I Need to Bring a Car to The Vineyard? continued It’s a question we hear a lot. With no bridge or connected road, you can’t drive here, so travel via air or sea is the only way to arrive. For those planning to take a ferry, the Steamship Authority from Woods Hole is the only service that can bring cars, motorcycles, RVs and trucks. Visit their website for schedules, availability and to make a reservation: steamshipauthority.com So, is it necessary to bringyour car here? Well, it depends. 1. Where are you planning to stay? If you are staying in one of the downtown areas of Vineyard Haven, Oak Bluffs, or Edgartown, it is possible to arrive via passenger ferry and get around on your own. All three downtowns offer safe, walkable streets as well as bike friendly roads. The towns are also easily connected by the Vineyard Transit Authority (VTA) bus system, which services all Island towns and runs daily from early morning until late into the evening. Local cab companies as well as ride share options are also available. 2. How long are you staying? If you’re only planning a day or two, leave your car on the mainland. A sightseeing tour is a great way to see most of the Island, and the VTA bus can easily get you around. 3. What activities do you have planned? If your itinerary includes travelling off the beaten path you may want to consider bringing your car, or renting a car on-Island. 4. How much stuff are you bringing? If you’re a family with young kids or you’re planning to stay a while you may be travelling with a lot of cargo. In that case we would recommend bringing a car to more easily transport your group and belongings. If you have young kids and are trying to avoid taking your car MV Baby Rent offers strollers, car seats, cribs and various other baby products for rent on-Island. 5. What is your budget? Taking your car over on the ferry isn’t cheap. In the off-season, November through March, the cost of travelling with a car starts at $110 round trip. From April through October the starting price jumps to $170 before adding in tickets for passengers. Give careful consideration to the factors above before determining which option is best for you. If you need additional information, give us a call at 508.693.0085 and we’ll help you navigate your choices. If you decide on taking your car then get in touch with the Steamship Authority as soon as you know your travel dates to make a reservation, as their summer schedule books up months in advance. If you opt to just walk on, there are many ferry services available seasonally including the Island Queen, Patriot Party Boat, and Falmouth-Edgartown ferry from Falmouth; Hyline Cruises from Hyannis, the Seastreak from New York or New Bedford, or the Martha’s Vineyard Fast Ferry from Rhode Island. Note that the Steamship Authority also offers passenger tickets and is the only ferry service that operates year round. 2020 -21 Travel Guide 5 PLAN

Private air travel can also be booked with several airline companies (Page 17). WHERE TO STAY Now that you know how you’re going to get here, your next step is to decide in which town to stay. Martha’s Vineyard has six small towns, each with their own distinctive personality, attractions, stories, and varieties of places to stay. The three port towns of Vineyard Haven, Oak Bluffs, and Edgartown are easily accessible and have concentrated town centers easy to explore on your own by foot.

Martha’s Vineyard The Island of By Towns FUN FACTS I Martha’s Vineyard is located seven miles off the coast of Cape Cod, Massachusetts. I We’re just one Island with six small towns, each with their own distinctive personality. I Originally named by the Wampanoag tribe as Noepe, the Island was later named after the daughter of a British explorer in 1602. Although there are no vineyards here, we do have two great microbreweries! I 17,000 of us live here year-round, and that grows to 250,000 in peak season. I The Vineyard is open year-round and there’s fun to be had 12 months of the year! I The Vineyard is roughly nine miles north to south, and 24 miles east to west, approximately 88 square miles total -which is nearly 4 times the size of Manhattan! But not to worry, it’s not as hectic here. I There’s an extensive, year-round public bus system that can easily get you around the entire Island.

TheTOWNS ofMARTHA’S VINEYARD Martha’s Vineyard is one Island made up of six small towns, each with its own distinctive personality, and plenty of offerings to explore. T o get you started speaking like an Islander, you’ll need to master the terms up-Island and down-Island. Up and down refer to nautical terms and can be confusing if you’re looking at a map. Islanders frequently use these terms to delineate between the three lively port towns of Vineyard Haven (a.k.a. Tisbury), Oak Bluffs and Edgartown; and the more rural towns of West Tisbury, Chilmark (home to the fishing village of Menemsha), and Aquinnah (sometimes referred to by its colonial name, Gay Head).

David Welch # (Martha’s Vineyard Sign Language). Head to the Chilmark Flea on Saturday mornings for The “Up-Island” pastoral town of Chilmark an eclectic mix DID YOU KNOW... Chilmark was named after the Vineyard’s founding father Thomas Mayhew’s neighboring English town and was settled in the mid-1600s. The first crop the farmers had to harvest was rocks. They put them in piles first, of the old and the new, or make a special trip to Menemsha (top) for the freshest seafood, some fishing, or spread your blanket on the beach to catch mother nature’s glorious sunsets - the perfect end to an Island day. I Marnely Murray DID YOU KNOW... In the mid-19th century one in four babies born in Chilmark was deaf. Rather than becoming isolated, the entire community, both deaf and hearing, learned and communicated by hand. When the first school for the deaf opened in 1817, Island children were among its first students. Their unique colloquialisms blended into the sign language being taught, which evolved into American Sign Language. Visit mvy.com/deafheritage for more information.

There you’ll find great David Welch Marnely Murray Marnely Murray DID YOU KNOW... Edgartown was called Great Harbor by the first settlers in 1642. To win the favor of King James II of England, the people wanted to rename the town for the King. Not wanting another Jamestown, they changed the name to honor the King’s infant son Edgar. Unfortunately, young Edgar died at the tender age of four, so there never was a King Edgar. We have the only Edgartown we know of.

Bicycling onMartha’s Vineyard C hoosing to see the Island by bicycle is a great way to soak up the Vineyard’s character. Cycling also helps reduce auto traffic, preserves the environment, promotes fitness, and – best of all – is a lot of fun! More than 44 miles of bike trails and miles of roadways are available for cyclists to enjoy. While cycling is a great way to get around the Vineyard, all riders should adhere to all Massachusetts’ traffic laws and regulations and take note of all warning signs. West Chop Loop West Tisbury to Vineyard Haven H F Violations of Massachusetts traffic laws are subject to fines, and police may impound the bicycles of cyclists under the age of 18. G Up-Island Route PLEASE NOTE: Narrow, rural roads are part of the Island’s charm, but they often have little or no shoulder for cyclists. Especially Up-Island, cyclists should evaluate their experience and comfort with riding in vehicular traffic that includes large trucks and buses. A. West Chop Loop: For a quick, scenic four-mile ride in Vineyard Haven, take Main Street out past the West Chop Lighthouse and loop back on either Main Street or Franklin Street. B. East Chop Drive: There is no off-road path for the three-mile trip from Vineyard Haven to Oak Bluffs, so you must share the road with cars and trucks, and it is a heavily traveled roadway. Be cautious, and consider taking East Chop Drive; while it’s a little longer, it’s much more scenic and less congested. C. Oak Bluffs to Edgartown: The sixmile Beach Road path from Oak Bluffs to Edgartown is the Island’s most popular ride offering scenic views of State Beach and Sengekontacket Pond. Note that the path is usually quite sandy. D. Edgartown to Vineyard Haven: To get directly from Edgartown to Vineyard Haven, use the Edgartown-Vineyard Haven Road path. Watch for vehicles crossing the path from side roads and driveways on this rolling, seven-mile trip. State E A B East Chop Drive C Beach Road Oak Bluffs to Edgartown Edgartown - Vineyard Hvn Rd D South Beach Route Download this map at MVY.com/bikingmv E. Edgartown to South Beach: Biking from Edgartown to South Beach avoids parking hassles, and there are paths with bike racks on both Katama and Herring Creek roads. Roads in Katama, like Edgartown Bay Road and Slough Cove Road, offer generally flat and pleasant riding. F. State Forest Loop: Four miles outside Edgartown, the path along Edgartown-West Tisbury Road takes you into the State Forest, where you can enjoy a beautiful loop of roughly ten miles around the forest. There is also a smaller loop of about three miles in the northeast corner of the forest. Both of these loops are easily accessible from Oak Bluffs (five miles away) and Vineyard Haven (about three miles). G. Up-Island Route: “Up-Island” towns of West Tisbury, Chilmark, and Aquinnah do not have multi-user paths. Most of the roads in these towns are narrow, winding, hilly, and suitable mainly for experienced cyclists. The scenery is terrific. H. West Tisbury to Vineyard Haven: To get fromWest Tisbury to Vineyard Haven, consider a detour on rolling, twisty Lambert’s Cove Road, and then take a left ontoWest Spring Street to avoid the heavy traffic on Upper State Road. 2020 -21 Travel Guide 65 PLAY

Hiking Through Beauty Daniel Rodriguez With endless stretches of scenic shoreline, rolling hills, expansive woodlands, and hundreds of miles of protected trails through the Island’s diverse landscape, there really is no better place to take a hike. Here’s our picks for the most picturesque (and most Instagrammable!) places to explore on foot. Aquinnah Headlands Preserve This area refers to what is commonly known as the Aquinnah or Gay Head Cliffs. This spot is often named the most beautiful location in Massachusetts and for good reason. This sacred ground covers almost 50 acres and the cliffs themselves rise 100 feet above the Atlantic Ocean. Enjoy views of the Charlie Utz Elizabeth Islands, the Cape Cod coastline, the Rhode Island shore, and, directly below, the Devil’s Bridge, a mile-long string of boulders and other glacial shards that proved dangerous to many in maritime history over the years. Thimble Farm This impressive cropland has long been a fixture on the Island, and is known for its innovative hydroponic greenhouses as well as a circumferential trail leading past Little Duarte’s Pond, a thick cool wetland nearby, on a preserve of over 60 acres Mytoi Japanese Garden If you weren’t expecting it you’d be surprised to find this little slice of Japanese heaven tucked away on Chappaquiddick island, a part of Edgartown. Mytoi is an intimate Japanese-style garden, which offers a natural place to escape and ponder. Sheltered by a charming cluster of pines, the preserve includes a small pond and island, flowers and plants, walkways and seating areas perfect for contemplation. If you’re looking for an outdoor venue, quiet reflection or meditation, this is the spot. 66 Martha’s Vineyard Chamber of Commerce Caroline Tuthill Preserve This parcel of land is conveniently located off of Beach Road in Edgartown and Edgartown-Vineyard Haven Road. This 150-acre preserve is made up of oak and pitch pine forest, wooded wetlands, salt marsh and open meadow, and it abuts Sengekontacket Pond to the north. While walking the preserve, one might observe such birds as crows, blue jays, chickadees, towhees, pine warblers, white-breasted nuthatches and red-eyed vireos. Charlie Utz Menemsha Hills Reservation A beautiful and diverse nature reserve located off of North Road in Chilmark and a popular hike that offers a variety of natural habitats including wetland, marsh, wooded groves, and a rocky shoreline, with sweeping views of Vineyard Sound. The three miles of trails are easily passable for the moderate hiker, with some extra energy needed to summit Prospect Hill and the view is worth the extra work! For additional details on our local hikes download the handy TrailsMVapp, a user friendly app that helps you better explore and connect the various trails on Martha’s Vineyard. Happy hiking!

Here’s What You Need to Know About The Derby Keith McArt The annual Martha’s Vineyard Derby is a month-long adventure for anglers of all ages. Held from mid-September to mid-October, The Derby offers anyone, visitors and locals of all ages, to get outdoors and enjoy the perfect season of early fall. The Derby is one of the few things we don’t joke about on the Vineyard. Sleep, work and the regular responsibilities of daily life are often compromised on-Island during the tournament, and for good reason: the winning shore fisherman rides away with the keys to a boat and the winning boat fisherman drives away in a new truck! The Derby fosters friendships and camaraderie, and creates lasting memories, while encouraging participants to fully appreciate the natural beauty of the Island. To fish The Derby is to become part of the fabric of the Island community and its history, and every eager fisherman, or woman, is welcome to participate. Interested fishing enthusiasts can register for The Derby at several local tackle shops including Larry’s Bait & Tackle, Dick’s Bait & Tackle, Coop’s Bait & Tackle, Keep it Reel Kayak & Tackle and others. The cost of registration is $60 for adults, $35 for seniors, and $25 for juniors. Plus, it’s kid friendly too! Enthusiastic anglers ages nine to 14 are invited to compete in the junior division and the youngest fishermen, those between four and eight, compete as mini juniors. For more information about the Derby visit www.mvderby.com. If you’re looking for some local fishing tips visit our nearby bait & tackle shops or contact our local captains and fishing charters. Good luck out there! All Photos Courtesy MVSB+BD 2020 -21 Travel Guide 73 John Piekos Adam Darack Colin Cournoyer Jim Cornwell ON THE WATER

The anINSd OUTS of Planning an Island Wedding W hile the Island makes for a beautiful backdrop, it can also be a logistically challenging location to host a special event. But the help of some extra considerations, and a few of the following insider tips can make it easier. Over-Communicate the Details Chances are many of your guests will have limited knowledge of all the travel options to get to the Island, and once here, how to get around. You’ll want to thoroughly communicate what your guests can do in advance to be prepared. Make sure to have a detailed wedding website or information card in your invitation, and refer them to mvy.com/gettinghere for a breakdown of the various travel options year round. Plan in Advance Especially for a summer or early autumn wedding. Accommodations and ferry reservations book up quickly this time of year, so its best to encourage your guests to book both as early as possible. You’ll find more flexibility, availability and better price points for all your wedding plans if you consider a spring, fall or winter wedding. With fewer crowds, your guests will find everything easier to enjoy, including our temperate climate. When it comes to lodging, keep in mind that there is not an endless selection of large hotels. The hotels that can accommodate the most guests include The Winnetu Oceanside Resort, The Harborside Inn, Edgar Hotel and the Harbor View Hotel in Edgartown; the Mansion House in Vineyard Haven, and Summer Camp in Oak Bluffs. Other smaller hotels, like the Hob Knob Hotel and Nobnocket Inn provide a more intimate setting and can be bought out exclusively for your guests. Another popular option for housing big groups is to rent a private home. Island realtors are always happy to help, and short term rental options are available. David Welch Hire a Local Wedding Planner Given the nuances of the Island and the special considerations involved in planning a Martha’s Vineyard wedding, you may want to consider hiring a local wedding planner.

The West Chop Lighthouse Peter Simon 94 Martha’s Vineyard Chamber of Commerce

The Gay Head Lighthouse Michael Blanchard/The Crossroads Gallery mvy.com/lighthouses T he 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. The West Chop Lighthouse was the Island’s last manned light. The lighthouse was built in 1817, and in 1838 the wooden building was replaced by the present brick structure. It was moved back from the edge of the 60-foot-high bluff in 1848 and again in 1891. In recent times, the small caretaker’s cottage at its foot has been occupied by Coast Guard personnel and is not open to the public. Vineyard Haven’s harbor has been recognized as a port of protection since 1645, and for 300 years it was one of the most important ports on the Atlantic coast. Originally called "Holmes Hole," it acquired the name Vineyard Haven in 1871. The East Chop Lighthouse in Oak Bluffs stands on the site of one of the first telegraph signals, set up in 1828. Signals from Nantucket were received here and relayed on to Woods Hole, Bournedale, South Plymouth, Duxbury, Marshfield, and Dorchester Heights. In the mid-1800s, Captain Silas Daggett built a privately owned lighthouse on East Chop. It was funded by local merchants who sailed in the area and by some of the ships passing through. Many, however, refused to pay a fee after they arrived safely in port. In 1875, the U.S. government bought the lighthouse and its land for $6,000 and the present cast-iron structure was built on the cliff 79 feet above the sea. Until 1988, when it was painted white, the East Chop Light was fondly called the Chocolate Lighthouse, for its brown-red color. These lighthouses were beacons in history as well as in navigation, for Vineyard Sound and Nantucket Sound once saw more ships sail through them than any other place in the world except the English Channel. The opening of the Cape Cod Canal in 1914, as well as local weather conditions, changed this. The original Edgartown Lighthouse was built in 1828, on a small man-made continued 2020 -21 Travel Guide 95 LIGHTHOUSES

The East Chop Lighthouse LA Brown island in the Edgartown harbor. An Act of Congress allocated money to build it 1/4 mile from shore. Later, $5,500 was appropriated to complete the project and Seth Vincent was paid $80 for a right of way to the tower. For the first year, the only way to get to the light was by boat, but another $2,500 was allocated to build a foot bridge. The first structure was replaced in 1938 by one that was rafted to the Vineyard from Ipswich. Although the new light was placed on the original site, sand had filled in the area between the island and the mainland, and the current Edgartown Lighthouse stands on shore. The Island sits in treacherous seas, with one tide coming in from Boston, affecting the south side of the Vineyard, and another from Rhode Island, affecting the north shore. There are reefs, rocks, and shoals, and the infamous Devil’s Bridge off Aquinnah, which wrecked the steamship The City of Columbus on January 18, 1884, with the loss of 120 crew and passengers in the icy waters. The Gay Head Lighthouse has always The Cape Poge Lighthouse Peter Simon 96 Martha’s Vineyard Chamber of Commerce been perilously close to the ever-eroding cliffs. The red brick light was built in 1844 to replace a wooden tower authorized by President John Quincy Adams. In 1856, the marvelous Fresnel lens with its 1,009 prisms was installed, after having been proudly exhibited at the World’s Fair in Paris. It is now LIGHTHOUSES

Gayheadlight.org preserved at the Martha’s Vineyard Museum in Vineyard Haven. The Gay Head Lighthouse is maintained by the town of Aquinnah. Visit Gayheadlight.org for tours and information. In May 2015, the Gay Head Lighthouse (above) was successfully moved 129 feet away from eroding cliffs, buying at least 150 years before erosion may require another move inland. The 400-ton tower survived the delicate move without a single crack. For more information and to watch the fascinating video of the move visit GayHeadLight.org The Cape Poge Lighthouse is by far the Island’s most remote, built in 1801 when an Act of Congress appropriated $2,000 for it. A 4-acre site was purchased for $36 from Marshal Jenkins, Martin Pease, and Joseph Huxboro. The original lighthouse was made of wood and had a small caretaker’s cottage. By 1838, the building was destroyed by the ravaging sea and rebuilt farther inland. It lasted only 50 years before the sea again claimed it and it was rebuilt, with a change from reflector lamps to red and white revolving prisms. The sea would not be denied, and reclaimed the lighthouse in 1892. It was rebuilt as a 33-foot-tall tower that lasted only another 35 years. The present white wooden structure was built in 1922, 55 feet high with a light visible for a distance of 12 miles. In 1985 it gained the distinction of being the first entire lighthouse to be moved by helicopter; in 1997 the lantern was again moved by helicopter for repairs. The lighthouse’s present site is 300 feet from the ever-hungry sea. All of the Island’s lighthouses, except the Cape Poge Lighthouse, are easily accessible by road, though the West Chop Lighthouse is not open to the public.

HISTORY Louis Pease Store, North Water Street, Edgartown Photo courtesy Martha’s Vineyard Historical Society mvy.com/history T he earth here tells the story erased elsewhere in New England. The famous Aquinnah Cliffs lay bare to geologists the history of the past hundred million years. Traveling the South Road to Aquinnah, one goes over low hills and valleys cut by streams that ran off melting glaciers at the end of the Ice Age. The first humans probably came here before the Vineyard was an island. It is thought that they arrived after the ice was gone, but before the melting glaciers in the north raised the sea level enough to separate Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket from the mainland. Native American camps that carbondate to 2270 B.C. have been uncovered on the Island. The Wampanoag aboriginal lands on the southwestern end of the Island, a 3,400-acre peninsula called Aquinnah. At present, there are over 1300 members listed on the Tribal rolls. Of these, approximately 300 reside on the island of Martha’s Vineyard; approximately 110 live in the town of Aquinnah. Legend surrounds the much later arrival of the first white men. Some believe Norsemen were here about 1000 A.D. In 1524, Verrazzano sailed past and named the island Louisa. Other explorers gave different names, but the one that stuck was given in 1602 by Bartholomew Gosnold, who named it for the wild grapes and for his eldest daughter. Within 40 years of It was a long trip in 1910 from Oak Bluffs to people have lived for thousands of years on the island of Martha’s Vineyard. “Wampanoag” means “People of the First Light.” Before Europeans renamed the island Martha’s Vineyard, it was called Noepe by the Wampanoag which means “land amid the waters.” Many Aquinnah Wampanoag still live on the Gay Head Lighthouse, but it was always a favorite summer excursion for Marion Cargill and her father, Walter John Cargill. Photo courtesy JoAnn Cargill Ewing. Gosnold’s visit, all of New England was being claimed and divided up by Europeans. Thomas Mayhew, a Bay Colony businessman, bought Martha’s Vineyard, Nantucket, and the Elizabeth Islands for 40 pounds. In 1642, the first white settlement on the Vineyard was established at Great Harbour, now Edgartown, under the leadership continued on next page 2020 -21 Travel Guide 111

The Steamer Wharf in Oak Bluffs circa 1870 Photo courtesy Chris Baer of Thomas Mayhew, Jr. The ordained pastor of his flock, this young man, by example and precept, instituted a policy of respect and fair dealing with the natives that was unequaled anywhere. One of the first Mayhew rulings was that no land be taken from the Wampanoags without consent and fair payment. From this time on, the colonial settlers and the Wampanoags lived without the terror and bloodshed that marked other areas in American history. Within a few years, a congregation of “Praying Indians” was established at what is still known as Christiantown. The Island also acted as a safe haven for people of African descent. One of the earliest mentions of African home ownership on-Island was in the 1763 will of a Wampanoag man named Elisha Amos. The will, 1/272 Dukes County Probate, provides that his “beloved wife Rebecca” receive livestock and his house for as long as she lived. Rebecca Amos was an enslaved woman origi112 Martha’s Vineyard Chamber of Commerce nally from Guinea, West Africa, who survived the cruel journey of the Middle Atlantic Passage. The described house was located about five miles from the farm of her enslaver, Colonel Cornelius Bassett, in Chilmark, where she co-resided until she regained freedom upon his death in 1779. The abolition of slavery in 1783 and the egalitarian nature of the whaling industry have made Martha’s Vineyard a nurturing place where all people have owned land and successfully built strong, supportive, and closelyknit communities. This colonial period Summer revival meeting in the MVCMA, c.1870. Photo courtesy Martha’s Vineyard Museum was marked by prosperity as well as peace. The sea provided fish for both export and Island use, and the Wampanoags taught the settlers to capture whales and tow them ashore to boil out the oil. Farms were productive as well; in 1720, butter and cheese were being exported by the shipload. The American Revolution, however, brought hardships to the Vineyard. Despite the Island’s declared neutrality, the people rallied to the Patriot cause and formed companies to defend their homeland. HISTORY

HISTORY The swordfish fleet at home in Menemsha Basin in the 1940s. Photo courtesy Everett H. Poole. With their long heritage of following the sea, Vineyarders served effectively in various maritime operations. Vineyarders, of course, knew that they could do little to resist a British invasion of the Island, and their worst fears were confirmed on September 10, 1778, when a British fleet of 40 ships sailed into Vineyard Haven harbor. Within a few days, the British raiders had burned many Island vessels and removed more than 10,000 sheep and 300 cattle from the Vineyard. The raid was an economic blow that affected Island life for more than a generation. The whaling industry did not make a real recovery until the early 1820s, when many of the mariners built their beautiful homes in Edgartown. The Civil War brought the end to the Golden Age of Whaling. Ships on the high seas were captured by the Confederate navy, while others were bottled up in the harbors. Either way, it meant financial ruin for the ship owners and the Island. A new industry was “God-sent” in a very literal way. In 1835, the Edgartown Methodists held a camp meeting in an oak grove high on the bluffs at the northern end of the town. The worshippers and their preachers lived in nine improvised tents and the speaker’s platform was made of driftwood. The camp meeting became a yearly affair and one of rapidly growing popularity. Many found the sea bathing and the lovely surroundings as uplifting as the call to repent. The Methodist Campground meetings were the catalysts that transformed the Island from a simple farming community into an internationally known seaside resort. Many who came for a week or two eventually rented houses and later became property owners – a pattern that still occurs today. Summer visitors become seasonal or, as in the case of many writers and artists, yearround residents. These people, along with the many who retire to the Vineyard, bring the world to the Island much as the far-traveled captains did in the great days of whaling.
