The Great Fire of 1883 devistated Main Street of Holmes Hole, known today as Vineyard Haven. The fire started in the harness factory and quickly spread, burning every home and business in its path. No one was killed in the fire, however. Most of the residents were in Oak Bluffs celebrating Illumination Night.

The Flying Horses Carousel in Oak Bluffs was originally located in Coney Island, N.Y., and was there for eight years until it was moved to Martha's Vineyard in 1884. The Martha's Vineyard Preservation Trust restored it in 1986. Inside each horse's eye there is a miniature porcelain animal such as an eagle or goat.

AQUINNAH Charlie Utz

he mile-long expanse of the Aquinnah Cliffs astonished early explorers and continues to be a source of intense interest to scientists and visitors alike. Here layers of sand, gravel, and clays of various hues tell a hundred-millionyear-old story of a land first covered with forests, then flooded and laid bare, time and again. Fossil bones of camels and wild horses, as well as those of ancient whales, have been found in the Cliffs’ layers. The Aquinnah Cliffs are a national landmark; yet they are seriously threatened. To protect the Cliffs, both climbing and the reDavid Welch moval of clay are prohibited by law. Because of the rocky ledge offshore, the seas around Aquinnah have always been a place of great peril to sailors. One of the first

T

revolving lighthouses in the country was erected atop the Cliffs in 1799, when the lighthouse keeper and his wife were obliged to stand all night and turn the light by hand. The current redbrick electrified Gay Head Light now stands in its place. Today, the lighthouse and cliffs are the background for some of the Island’s most spectacular weddings. Many of the 400 year-round residents of Aquinnah are descendants of the Wampanoag Indians, who showed the colonial settlers how to kill whales, plant corn and find clay for early brickyards. The Aquinnah Cultural Center, a museum detailing the history of this indigenous people, and tribe-owned handicraft shops are located at the Cliffs. 2009 Travel Guide

CH ILM ARK

Charlie Utz

hilmark is a town of rolling hills and unmatched coastline where verdant fields are dotted with white sheep and outlined by a bright blue ocean. The ancient stone walls of farms past still ribbon the hills. Summer residents prize Chilmark for it’s pastoral setting; what the town lacks in nightlife it more than makes up for with peace and quiet. A handful of spectacular inns cater to those looking for privacy and pampering. Two of the town’s beaches, Lucy Vincent and Squibnocket, are open only to Chilmark residents and inn guests June 1 through September 30. The fishing village, Menemsha, is located in the heart of Chilmark. Here you can watch the draggers come in with their nets teaming with fish and the lobstermen land their catches in a picturesque harbor you may recognize from the movie Jaws. Seafood may be purchased right off the boats or from one of the dockside cafes. Nearby Menemsha Beach is the ideal spot to watch the sunset.

E DGARTOW N Marl Lovewell

ne of New England’s most elegant communities, Edgartown was the Island’s first colonial settlement. The stately white Greek Revival houses built by the whaling captains have been carefully maintained to this day. They make the town a museum-piece community, a seaport village preserved from the early 19th century. The tall square-rigged ships that sailed all the world’s oceans have passed from the Edgartown scene, but the heritage of those vessels and their captains has continued. For the past hundred years Edgartown has been one of the world’s great yachting centers. The Old Whaling Church on Main Street is Edgartown’s icon. Built in 1843 at the height of the whaling industry, the Church has been transformed into a performing arts center and is one of the Island’s most popular wedding venues. Receptions are held

O

next door in the Dr. Daniel Fisher House, a former private residence built three years before the Old Whaling Church. Chappaquiddick, an island in Edgartown Harbor, is home to some of the Vineyard’s most beautiful private homes but no restaurants or shops. Parking is very limited, so it’s better to leave your car on the Vineyard. Pack a lunch and take a bike ride to the Island, via the On Time Ferry, for a tour of the Cape Pogue lighthouse or visit Mytoi, a 14-acre Japanese garden maintained by the Trustees of Reservations. Edgartown is lined with lovely boutiques selling everything from authentic scrimshaw carvings to evening gowns. Restaurants range from fine dinCharlie Utz ing to family-friendly and local seafood is the star of many menus. One of only two towns on the Island where alcohol can be purchased, Edgartown offers a sophisticated and lively nightlife. 2009 Travel Guide

n 1835 this community, originally known as Wesleyan Grove, served as the site for annual Methodist Church camp meetings, drawing congregations of more than 12,000 people. They came for the sermonizing and stayed for the sunshine. Attendees camped in family-sized tents that evolved into wooden cottages. As the cottages multiplied, each family tried to outdo each other and “Cottage City” was born. Today there are more than 300 Gingerbread Cottages in this oneof-a-kind village that draws visitors from around the world.

mark the end of the summer season. This Vineyard tradition continues to this day. Oak Bluffs is also the home of the Flying Horses Carousel, the oldest continuously operating carousel in the country. This historic landmark is open daily during the summer, and on weekends in the spring and fall. A game arcade, a movie theater and public beaches make Oak Bluffs a popular destination for families. One of only two Vineyard towns in which alcohol is served, Oak Bluffs also has its share of nightlife, including live Charlie Utz music venues and an array of dining options. Many shops line Circuit Avenue and the Art’s District just beyond boasts excellent galleries representing every medium. 2009 Travel Guide

hen ships were powered by wind and canvas, Vineyard Haven was one of New England’s busiest ports. Today it is the busiest port on the Vineyard and the primary point of entry for visitors to the Island by ferry. Excellent shops, fine restaurants, and a beautiful harbor are only a few of the attractions that make this Louisa Gould bustling seaside village so special to tourists and residents alike. The town that incorporates Vineyard Haven is called Tisbury, after a parish in England near the birthplace of the Island’s first governor, Thomas

W

Mayhew. In the mid-1600s, Mayhew purchased the settlement rights from the Crown. The Vineyard Playhouse building on Church Street was built in 1833 as a Methodist meeting house. Today it houses the Island’s only year-round professional theater company. There are many scenic places around the town; in addition to Main Street and the harbor, the Tashmoo Lake overlook on State Road, the nearby Tisbury Water Works, West Chop Lighthouse, and Eastville, the area around the drawbridge on Beach Road are favorite spots for photographers.

est Tisbury is the quintessential New England village, complete with a white church, general store, post office, old mill and pastoral farms. It was the mill site that originally attracted settlers, because there was no stream in Edgartown with enough strength to run a water wheel. Sea captains once owned the largest houses in town, and some of the finest are still occupied by their descendants. Several captains’ houses can be found on Music Street, given its name after a number of its families purchased pianos with new whaling money. The Lambert’s Cove settlement has

W

its share of fine homes. The Cove was once a place of anchorage for the town of West Tisbury. The area housed clay works, salt works, and extensive trap fishing operations. All of this has vanished. Even the road to the harbor is gone. A woodland path leads to the beach, which is now set aside for year-round and summer residents of West Tisbury. West Tisbury is David Welch the home of several art and antique galleries as well as the annual Livestock Show and Agricultural Fair. The Fair, held each August on the grounds of the Agricultural Hall, is the highlight of a Martha’s Vineyard summer, drawing visitors back year Charlie Utz after year. 2009 Travel Guide

Bicycling on Martha’s Vineyard

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!

C

Laws Applicable to Cyclists:

Bicycles are subject to Massachusetts’s traffic laws and regulations, specifically:

■ Bicycles shall ride WITH traffic, to the right,

and single file. DO NOT ride against traffic!

■ Bicyclists shall signal when turning or

stopping (use either hand). ■ Bicyclists 16 and under MUST wear a helmet. ■ Bicyclists and passengers must ride on a permanent seat or child seat. ■ Bicyclists must not carry bundles, except in a basket or rack. ■ Parked bicycles may not obstruct vehicle or pedestrian traffic. This applies on the paths, too. ■ Bicycles ridden at night (1⁄2 hour after sunset to 1⁄2 hour before sunrise) must be equipped with front and rear lights, and have reflectors on both pedals. ■ Bicycles must not be towed, and must have a braking system. Violations of the above laws are subject to fines, and police may impound the bicycles of cyclists under the age of 18.

Other Things You Need to Know:

■ The Island features a network of multi-user

paths available for your use. “Multi-user” means you share the path with walkers, runners, roller skaters, etc. All users should stay to the right on paths. Remember that pedestrians have the right of way on paths, and cyclists must give audible warning when

110

Martha’s Vineyard Chamber of Commerce

Nicole Friedler

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, there are certain things to be aware of, even if you are an experienced rider: passing (e.g., “Passing on your left.”). ■ Be alert for vehicles crossing the path from side roads and driveways when riding on multi-user paths. ■ Cyclists ALWAYS have the right to ride in the road if a path isn’t available, or conditions on the path are unsatisfactory. ■ Beware of sand and debris, soft road shoulders, and storm drains. ■ Always wear a helmet. ■ Headphones are unsafe when riding, as is using a cell phone. ■ Riding on sidewalks is permissible, except in downtown areas where posted. ■ Plan ahead: Food, water, bike shops, and restrooms are generally only available at town centers. Carry plenty of water, and the equipment and know-how to fix a flat tire. Also, bring a Vineyard Transit Authority (VTA) schedule and fare as VTA buses are equipped with racks for two or three bikes. ■ 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.

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

H

A

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.

D. Edgartown to Vineyard Haven: To getdirectly 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.

C. Oak Bluffs to Edgartown: The six-mile 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.

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.

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.

D

H. West Tisbury to Vineyard Haven: To get from West Tisbury to Vineyard Haven, consider a detour on rolling, twisty Lambert’s Cove Road, and then take a left onto West Spring Street to avoid the heavy traffic o n Upper State Road.

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.

Fishing on Martha’s Vineyard

Louisa Gould

artha’s Vineyard is best known as a summertime home for celebrities and a tourist destination. However, the real attraction for an increasing number of saltwater fishermen is the opportunity to hook up with all of the Northeast’s premier gamefish on some of the prettiest beaches and water anywhere in the United States. Bluefish, striped bass, bonito, false alba-

core, and Spanish mackerel can all be caught in-season from beaches and jetties on the Vineyard. In addition, white marlin, yellowfin tuna, football-sized bluefins, and shark are all within boat range. If you decide to go fishing with one of the experienced charter captains (see pages 101 & 102) on the Island, you are almost certain to come home with a keeper, a fish a minimum of 28 inches long. If you prefer to Marl Lovewell fish from shore, a trip to one of the Island’s full-service bait and tackle shops (see page 102) will get you all the gear and insider’s advice you need. You’ll find that the proprietors have a vast information network that lets them pinpoint where the fish are running throughout the year.


The Martha’s Vineyard Striped Bass and Bluefish Derby he first cool winds and shortening days of September set the stage for the annual fall migration, and the Vineyard’s premier tournament: the Annual Martha’s Vineyard Striped Bass & Bluefish Derby. This month-long event, which begins in mid-September and ends in mid-October, celebrates its 64th anniversary in 2009, and attracts more than 2,000 entrants – men, women, and children annually. Rich in Vineyard fishing tradition, almost 900 Islanders join hundreds of visitors in this tournament. More than just a fishing contest, it initiates a month when the common language is of wind, tides, and fish. Although the primary focus is on fishing, this tournament has become a grand and most unique fishing reunion, where during the day or under a canopy of stars, new friends are made, and old friendships renewed. Finding a good spot to fish during the derby is never a problem. Any of the local tackle shops will be happy to help you out.

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. 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 118

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 had 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, year-round 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.

THE ISLAND THAT SPOKE BY HAND by Jamie Kageleiry

F

or almost three centuries, due to a recessive gene, the population of Martha’s Vineyard had an unusual proportion of profoundly deaf people. Modern mobility and population diversity have virtually erased the Vineyard’s deaf community, but in 1854, when the incidence of deafness on the Island peaked, the national average was one deaf person in 5,728; on the Vineyard, it was one in 155. In Chilmark it was one in 25, and in Squibnocket, a section of Chilmark, one in four babies born in the mid– 19th-century was deaf. In a place that was itself isolated – a trip downIsland took a day over rutted roads – the deaf of Chilmark could have been excruciatingly lonely. Yet they lived full lives, grew up, were happy or unhappy, farmed well or farmed poorly, married well or badly, and got on or didn’t get on with their neighbors like anybody else. They just spoke with their hands. Children learned to sign “from the crib,” at the same time they learned to speak. At town meetings, hearing signers would stand in front and translate the goingson for the deaf. The same thing went on in church. If a deaf person

Ron Hall

had something to say to the congregation, he or she would stand up and sign; if someone didn’t know sign fluently, chances were that the person next to him did and could translate. As the 18th century turned into the 19th, offIsland experts began proclaiming a new approach to educating the deaf. Their idea was to school the deaf together to promote the use of sign language. In 1817 the country’s first school for the deaf opened in Hartford, Connecticut, where the faculty taught a version of French sign. Vineyard children were among its first students and remained the only large group at the school. The Island children brought with them their Vineyard sign language, and their colloquialisms blended into the formal sign being taught. The result evolved into American Sign Language.

By the second half of the 19th century, off-Island attitudes toward the disabled had begun to shift. Deafness was now something to overcome, said the experts, not to accommodate. It was sending the deaf children off-Island to school that ended the Vineyard’s genetic isolation. Off-Island, Vineyard kids met deaf mates from other places or mates whose deafness may not have been inborn. George West, Jr., for example, met his offIsland wife, Sabrina, at the Hartford School. These marriages diluted the gene pool that had sheltered the recessive gene for two centuries.

Island Architecture

Peter Simon

Gracious Up-Island homes dot the landscape

artha’s Vineyard has a remarkable variety of architecture that reflects its long colonial history, its economic success in the whaling era, and its emergence as a popular summer resort. Most of the Island’s historical buildings are still in use as homes and stores, creating a unique sense of identity far removed from the standardized style of business areas found in much of America. The English settlers arrived on Vineyard shores only twenty-two years after the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth in 1642. They built simple homes that reflected both their religious beliefs and the challenges of Island living. The Puritan church frowned on any ostentatious display, so the wealthy usually chose to live as simply as their less affluent neighbors. They built one-story Charlie Utz houses out of wood, and

M

covered them with long shingles. They kept their homes low to the ground so they would not be battered by the lashing winter winds. The Island offers visitors many examples of such Cape houses, some of which actually date from the late 17th century. The Vincent House Museum (1672), on Main Street in Edgartown is an excellent example. As time passed, people began to add a second story to the Cape style to create Colonial houses. The Thomas Cooke House (1765), at the Vineyard Museum on School Street in Edgartown is one of many remarkable examples of Colonial architecture on the Island. Ironically, the Vineyard had almost no Salt Boxes, another popular style in the colonial period, until the late 20th century when developers built them, assuming they represented the historical style of the Island.

Gingerbread Houses in Oak Bluffs

Martha’s Vineyard Chamber of Commerce


Oak Bluffs Gingerbread

Oak Bluffs, which began as a Methodist Camp Meeting site in 1834, has a very different style from the rest of the Island. Visitors to the early meetings lived in tents, but after the Civil War, the tents were replaced by permanent Gingerbread houses. Their combination of bright colors, stained glass, turrets, and all manner of Gothic detail is unforgettable. Trinity United Methodist Church (1878), in the center of the Campgrounds, is a miniature wooden Gothic cathedral. It stands next to the open-air Tabernacle (1879), the largest iron structure in existence, listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Cottage City Museum in the same area is housed in one of the original homes, and gives one a real sense of how tiny the cottages are. The early 20th century saw the development of the Camp Houses, large shingled summer homes that can be seen in East and West Chop and on the waterfront around the Island. They were built by wealthy off- Islanders who wanted to experience a simple rustic existence when they came to the Vineyard. Today, in addition to its many historical homes, Marthaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Vineyard also offers distinguished examples of modern architecture, so be sure to keep your eyes open as you explore the Island.

The Old Whaling Church, Edgartown

Classic revival home in Edgartown 2009 Travel Guide

Nicole Friedler

The new wealth of the 19th century whaling era brought show-off architecture to the Vineyard for the first time. Whaling investors and captains tried to outdo one another through the grandeur of their homes. Magnificent examples of their efforts can be found in Edgartown, Vineyard Haven, and throughout the Island. Many chose to return to the original farm communities â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which explains the row of beautiful Classical Revival homes on Music Street in West Tisbury.

of Martha’s Vineyard was installed, after having been proudly exhibited at the World’s Fair in Paris. It is now preserved at the Martha’s Vineyard Museum, and is lighted every evening after dark. 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. 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, and is 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. The Trustees of Reservations (508-6273599) offer tours of the Cape Poge Lighthouse. The Gay Head, East Chop, and Edgartown Lighthouses are maintained by the Martha’s Vineyard Museum (508-627-4441) under a 30-year lease with the United States Coast Guard.
