History

Located in south Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard is an island that was previously known as Noepe, meaning “land amid the streams. It was named by the native Wampanoag Indians. Bartholomew Gosnold, a British explorer, had gone across the Atlantic in the year 1602 and arrived at a region that he named Cape Cod due to the fish in the neighborhood. The adjacent island was labeled after his daughter, thus the name Martha’s Vineyard. It was then acquired by Thomas Mayhew, a colonial businessman, in 1641 and was settled the following year and considered to be a part of the New York state until the year 1962.

By the late 1600s, Martha’s Island was occupied by among the earliest deaf villages in the US. The inhabitants create   d the Martha’s Vineyard Sign Language, which is a forerunner of the contemporary American Sign Language. It was home to a thriving and huge whaling business in the 19th century.

Area and Climate

Martha’s Vineyard is located in Cape Cod and is popular for being a prosperous summer settlement during the summer. It consists of Chappaquiddick Island that was part of an identical land mass until 2007 before it was separated by a storm.

This island is normally called The Vineyard and has a 100-square mile land area and is considered as the 3rd biggest on the East Coast of the country and the 58th biggest island in the US as well. In addition, it is the biggest island that is not attached to the mainland by a tunnel or bridge on the East Coast.

Martha’s Vineyard lies in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts that is a part of Dukes County, consisting of Nomans Land and Cuttyhunk. Nomans Land is a wildlife preserve and used to be a practice bombing range of US Naval until 1996.

The climate of this great small town is very much affected by Atlantic Ocean that regulates temperatures all over the year. Winter tends to be a bit warmer, whereas summer tends to be colder than local areas. July and August are the warmest months, averaging about 71.5 °F. Fall and spring are transition seasons, although spring is much colder than fall.

Real Estate and Cost of Living

If you are thinking about purchasing a summer home in this beautiful island, or if this is your first time exploring it, you will find that the place is indeed a haven from the mainland’s quick pace, allowing the stress and anxiety to just disappear the minute you get on the glinting white ferries. It features an exceptional character and beauty, which is why the island’s real estate market has shown a swift appreciation in home value over the previous decade. As a matter of fact, Martha’s Vineyard was listed by Barron as one of the top 2nd home regions in the United States.

The cost of living in this area in 2007 was roughly 60% higher than the national average, and housing prices were 96% higher than the national average.

Lifestyle and Things to Do

Martha’s Vineyard has become a popular tourist attraction due to the numerous lovely beaches and the very nice weather during summer. This is your go-to place if you want absolute relaxation. Practically all activities and social life occur at the resident’s home and not in small towns.

During summer, most of the residents are reputable seasonal occupants who live from up and down the Northeast coast. They are the people who typically come from all parts of the US and overseas; however, The Vineyard is likely a place for those who permanently reside in a nearby area. A lot of communities that border the island are likely to have deep family roots that were established over the years, thus making new friends and creating lasting friendships. Even so, a lot of tourists are weekenders and summer renters, owing to the fact that this island is a place to call your second home.
