Official Town Website
Seen by some to be one of New England's most elegant communities, Edgartown
was Martha's Vineyard's first colonial settlement and has been the county
seat since 1642. The stately Greek Revival houses built by the whaling
captains have been carefully maintained and make the town a seaport village
preserved from the early 19th century.
Main Street views include the harbor and waterfront and although the tall
square-riggers that sailed all the world's oceans have passed from the
scene, the heritage of these vessels and their captains remains. For the
past hundred years, Edgartown has been one of the world's great yachting
centers. The town is also known for its architecture with many buildings
that pre-date the whaling era and still serve as family homes. Among the
oldest buildings are the Vincent House, built in 1672, the Thomas Cooke
House, now a museum, and the offices of the Vineyard Gazette. The
venerable Old Whaling Church is now a performing arts center.
Public beaches offer surf bathing and bluefish and bass fishing. On Felix
Neck, about three miles outside the center of town, 200 acres owned by the
Massachusetts Audubon Society provide marked trails and a program of
wildlife management and conservation education. Special activities for all
age groups are offered throughout the year.
Located on Martha's Vineyard, an island 20 miles long and 10 miles wide situated
five miles south of the soutwest tip of Cape Cod. Edgartown is bordered by Oak
Bluffs and Nantucket Sound on the north, Katama Bay on the east, the Atlantic
Ocean on the south, and West Tisbury on the west. Edgartown is separated from
Chappaquiddick Island by Katama Bay.
