This is what you would expect a church in Edgartown to look like. A beautiful example of Greek Revival architecture. The grand columns beckon visitors.

Had a beautiful night to hear Judy in concert. The acoustics were terrific, lovely breeze coming in the open windows and a very appreciative crowd. Only negative are the uncomfortable pew seats. But a small price to pay for a great show/venue.

Go on their website on Martha’s Vineyard and they post events or go on the Vineyard Gazette (local newspaper) where events are also posted.
