Town of Edgartown

Thursday, 19 September 2013

One of New England's most elegant communities, Edgartown was Martha's Vineyard's first colonial settlement and it has been the county seat since 1642. The stately white Greek Revival houses built by the whaling captains have been carefully maintained. They make the town a museum-piece community, a seaport village preserved from the early 19th century.
