Product Overview

Oak Bluffs, originally incorporated in 1880 as Cottage City, is located on the northeast shore of Martha''s Vineyard. Oak Bluffs: The Cottage City Years on Martha''s Vineyard traces this historically significant town from its early years as the site of a renowned religious camp meeting to its incorporation as Cottage City and later as Oak Bluffs. Using historic images, it captures the religious and social spirit of the community and the fun times of promenading on the bluffs, bathing at the beach, playing croquet, and celebrating with parades and illuminations. This book evokes memories of a bygone era: the canvas Tabernacle and tents in Wesleyan Grove, the Sea View House and Martha''s Vineyard Railroad in Oak Bluffs, the horse-drawn trolley, and the Martha''s Vineyard Summer Institute in the Vineyard Highlands. Also captured is the remarkable preservation of Oak Bluffs, as seen in early photographs of its parks, cottages, and buildings, such as the Tabernacle, Union Chapel, and Arcade.
