Culture & History

Older than your great grandfather

Dating all the way back to the early 1600’s, history on the Vineyard is deep. Visit the Martha’s Vineyard Museum or the Aquinnah Cultural Center to learn about the islands indigenous past. Walk through the enchanting Polly Hill Arboretum where you will discover a classic Vineyard landscape that has held its connection all the way from 1670. Wander through over 180 historic Gingerbread cottages, an experience that will transport you back to your childhood imagination. If spooky is more your style, guided group ghost tours are popular in the evening but proceed at your own risk.
