Cape Cod Land of The Vineyard

The beauties that are hidden among the winding roads throughout Martha’s Vineyard are unbroken. Many of the towns remain as they were when the first white settlers came. Here we find the coolest, clearest ponds and streams, beautiful beaches, and lovely lookout hills from which we are able to gaze upon far horizons.

The little villages of West Tisbury and Chilmark took their names from English towns which were old when New England was new. A few old, and charming houses, old fashioned general stores, a church spire and then, spreading out in far reaches are these small villages. It is in towns like these that we find the natural setting which seems to have come from across the ocean.

At Menemsha is the fishing village. The name is Indian, for long before the white men came, the Indians had this as their fishing abode. Toward the west, the country becomes much higher and there is true beauty and enchantment in the roaming hills which seem to glide out to sea. At the westernmost point is the village of Gay Head. Its name comes from the colored clay cliffs of delicate tints and hues which match the moods of the sea.
