This is worth a quick visit. We did not linger as there was a funeral at the church. Very pretty houses and some amazing color combinations. Interesting history.

One of my favorite stops on our bus tour. The colorful gingerbread cottages were lovely and the outdoor tabernacle with its stained glass windows was beautiful Loved walking around here and hearing the history from our guide.

Camp grew from tents in 1840s to Posen shacks, to beautiful but rustic wooden masterpieces. Beautiful central tabernacle for weekly sing alongs surrounded by 350 colorful camp Victorian cabins.

The "Campground" as we locals call it, is a trip back to an earlier time in Vineyard history. Go on a sunny day and be sure to stop in at the museum next to the Tabernacle.
