Aquinnah-Gayhead Lighthouse

AQUINNAH – Many year-round residents are descendants of the Wampanoag Indians who showed the colonial settlers how to kill whales, plant corn, and find clay for the early brickyards. Much later, these Aquinnah Indians were in great demand as boatsteerers in the whaling fleets.
The brilliant colors of the mile-long expanse of the Aquinnah Cliffs astonished early explorers and have continued to be a source of interest to scientists and visitors alike. One of the first revolving Lighthouses was erected atop the Cliffs in 1799.

Chilmark – Menemsha

CHILMARK is a town of rolling hills and unmatched coastline. The stone fences of the sheep farms still ribbon the hills. The center of Chilmark boasts a lovely church. All roads from the center at Beetlebung corner lead to points of beauty. The Menemsha Crossroad joins North Road and takes one to the fishing village once known as MENEMSHA Creek. Here draggers still come in with their nets and the lobstermen land their catches.
