Village sights in Martha’s Vineyard
- Sort by:
In 1835, a Methodist association began holding revival meetings in Oak Bluffs, and the congregation camped in tents. As meetings grew, participants pitched tents on wooden platforms, which evolved into some 300 small cottages. These were adorned with bold colours and whimsical ornamental woodwork in a style known as Carpenter Gothic and make quite a sight today .
