Sitting in the Atlantic south of Cape Cod, Massachusetts is Martha’s Vineyard which is well renowned for its affluent summer colony encompassing sandy beaches, lighthouses, harbor towns, and traditional New England cottages. The Vineyard also includes the adjacent Chappaquiddick Island that’s connected to it. As a matter of fact, it’s the 58th biggest island in America, occupying an area of around 96 square miles and comes in third on the East Coast, after Mount Desert Island and Long Island. Martha’s Vineyard encapsulates the Dukes County bulk that includes the island of Nomans Land and Elizabeth Islands. Located in Dukes County, Massachusetts, the highest point on the island is Peaked Hill.
Another thing about Martha’s Vineyard is that it can only be accessed via air or boat. Vineyard Haven is located on the eastern end acts as a ferry port and the main commercial center of the island.

Kids, especially the young at heart, just love riding this carousel. Riders can participate in a game called the brass ring game, where one gets to collect as many rings as possible while riding the metal ring dispenser.

History of Martha's Vineyard
Initially, the island was a colony of the Wampanoag people. They were immigrants from the Cape Verde islands and England, farmers, colored, merchants and blacksmiths. In 1602, Benjamin Gosnold named the island anew to Martha’s Vineyard from Noepe. Most Wampanoag still inhabits 3400 acres of Aquinnah land, living on aboriginal lands situated on the southwest end of the island. In the year 1642, the white men settled on Great Harbor, on what is now referred to as Edgartown, under the stewardship of Thomas Mayhew Jr.
Did you know that the first Bible in America was printed in the Wampanoag language? Well, it was. The island was also a haven for African people, with one of the early mentions coming in 1763 even before the abolition of the slave trade. In 1835, Edgartown Methodists formed a new industry after hosting a camp meeting on the northern end oak grove.
The meetings later on, become an annual affair rapidly receiving traction. Most people found the lovely surroundings and sea bathing more uplifting than the call for repenting. These meetings transformed Martha’s Vineyard from a family community to an internationally renowned seaside resort. By the 20th Century, tourism on the island was fundamental in its overall economy.
