Old Whaling Church

Now used primarily for public meetings, concerts, weddings and other events, this handsome church was built during the heyday of whaling in 1843 and is considered one of New England's best examples of Greek Revival architecture. Owned and maintained since 1980 by The Vineyard Trust, it is located next door to the Dr. Daniel Fisher House on Edgartown's Main Street.
