West Tisbury, Massachusetts on the island of Martha's Vineya

10 years ago839 views

INFO: http://www.SandpiperRealty.com - Time slips away easily in West Tisbury. The clock in the church tower is hand-wound, and strikes the hour by day and night. Music Street, in the heart of the village, got its name from the sound of the pianos brought back by the whaling captains and heard through open windows 150 years ago. The tiny police station by the Mill Pond is just as described in the mystery books of 13th generation town resident Cynthia Riggs. Across the street, an old country store, long since closed, collapses in on itself. In the town cemetery, visitors leave small toy birds on the grave of 19th century poet Nancy Luce, who kept chickens as household pets.

You can definitely get away from it all in West Tisbury, Martha's Vineyard's traditional farming community. The porch at Alley's General Store, in the heart of the village, is the place to watch the day go by. Pick up a copy of the Broadside, for "one thin dime", and find out what the locals are talking about – the single sheet, front-and-back paper is a distinctive blend of news and speculation, and is put out by a West Tisbury couple who seem to know and hear everything.
