Edgartown, Martha's Vineyard
In none of the other Martha's Vineyard towns does one get as strong a sense of the Vineyard’s maritime history as in Edgartown.
Elegant 19th century homes comprise downtown; in summer, their long-established gardens add color and fragrance.

and browse the artifacts, art and other reminders of days past. The town cemetery on the town’s western perimeter includes memorial stones dedicated to Island-
born whalers lost at sea.
Back in the present, Edgartown draws shoppers, strollers, sailors and seekers of fine food to its boutiques, jewelers and world class restaurants, wine bars and sidewalk cafes.

the Island’s newspaper of record for well over a century still prints the paper onsite at
