Item Information

Title:
Eldridge's map of Martha's Vineyard
Description:
The Trustees have six reservations totaling more than 1,800 acres on the islands of Martha's Vineyard and Chappaquiddick. Cape Poge Wildlife Refuge, Wasque and Mytoi are found on the Vineyard's easternmost region – Chappaquiddick Island – while Norton Point Beach, Long Point Wildlife Refuge and Menemsha Hills are located on the main island. This 1913 tourist map of Martha's Vineyard depicts the diverse landscapes, made up of woodlands, hills, marshes, beaches and gardens. Some of the map's locations are easily recognizable by name, as they are based on natural features or original Native American titles.
