Martha's Vineyard carries stories passed down generations, its name potentially a nod to the kin of English explorer Bartholomew Gosnold. Native Americans once called it Noepe or Capawock. Initially home to the Wampanoag people, the island saw European settlement in the mid-17th century. It has seen multiple transitions, from being a part of New York to becoming a part of Massachusetts again. It has nurtured Native American graduates from Harvard and has been a beacon of literacy and culture. Every grain of sand, every rock on the island, holds a piece of this rich tapestry of history.
