“Vincent House”

Vincent House Museum
Reviewed 22 July 2014

Ok we drove here and chased people between Whaling Church and the home. Was told to come back at 11. We did that no one at house or church. Told to go to other museum. We did and bought a pass but this museum we had already visited. Child function around church and house so no one came. So we went to Edgartown light which we did get in to. These places are open only certain days, and no one knows if someone is coming. Rooms locked so you cannot even walk around, just look in windows. These passes are only good til end of year? At $300 a nite and almost $200 for car for a 4 day stay who can come back? I usually come off-season, think meals and shopping on top of that.....expensive and disappointed....

We arrived just before closing time but the docent still gave us a tour around the house and told us the history of the house and the people who lived there. It was fascinating and we're grateful she was kind enough to do this. Fascinating house and we learnt a lot about the history of Cape houses which we then noticed everywhere!

The Vincent house was built in the 1600s and it is furnished with items that replicated those in that existe in the house. The tour was brief--about 30 minutes--but very informative. The tourguide was very knowledgeable and interesting. All the downstairs rooms were viewed anf the guise explained the origin of the frnishings. When visiting Edgartown, MA you need to take this tour--you won't regret it. The cost for this tour was $5.00.

We bought the tour package that included admission to the Old Whaling Church, The Daniel Fisher House, The Edgartown Lighthouse, The Martha's Vineyard Museum, and the Old Sculpin Gallery. We visited the Lighthouse, the Museum and the Gallery before making it over to the Vincent House. The tour was a good half hour if not a little longer, and the guide who gave it to us was very knowledgeable about the time period, the history of the house, and the family history. She shared all sorts of stories with us, along with the facts that were presented, and answered all sorts of curious questions that I had in a very pleasant manner. She went on to give us a tour of the Daniel Fisher House and the Old Whaling church, and we enjoyed our tour with her very much.

For $10, you get a guided tour of the Vincent house (c, 1671) and the adjacent Fisher house and "Whaling Church" (both early 1800s),
The tours start in, and concentrate on, the Vincent house, a very well preserved Cape Cod style house, with some period furnishings. Our guide was very knowledgable and articulate, happy and able to answer questions.
We tried to visit on a Saturday, when they were closed. There was no sign giving hours or details, We tried again on Monday, with better luck. They were open at 11:00, and had hourly tours, lasting almost an hour.
