Alley’s General Store …

Alley’s General Store, located in Chilmark opened for business  in 1858.  It is the oldest operating retail business on the Vineyard, which almost came to an end in the 1980’s.  Fortunately around 1993 the MV Preservation Trust bought the property, renovated it and gave “the dealers in almost anything” a new lease on life.

Step inside Alley’s and be amazed and delighted at what you might find there, it’s a general store in the truest sense of the word.  Take a look at the ever present bulletin board notices… catch up on the local news of the day… or just sit on the porch with a cup of coffee.

I'm married, I have two daughters and two grandchildren and they all love MV. Enjoy my MV blog and contact me if I can answer any questions. This blog started out as strictly about Martha's Vineyard but over the years I've branched out to include other obsessions and interests. I enjoy photography and like sharing my photos here as well. Hope you enjoy :)
