Feel the past in your travels
The island that is today Martha's Vineyard was originally, and still is, inhabited by the Wampanoag Indians. It was named Martha's Vineyard by the explorer Bartholomew Gosnold who sailed here in 1602. His mother-in-law and second child, who died in infancy, were both named Martha. The island was brought to prominence in the 19th century when the whaling industry came to the area. The discovery of petroleum in Pennsylvania gave rise to a cheaper source of oil for lamps in the late 19th century, and the industry of the area collapsed. It was after this time that summer residences began to develop on the island and grew as an area for tourists to visit.
