MV Obsession

My obsession with Martha's Vineyard.. phototography..genealogy and life in general and this and that…

Through A Church Window …


I took these pictures of the Federated Church in Edgartown in May one evening around 6pm.  The light through the windows was at a perfect angle to illuminate the inside of the church with a warm golden glow.





“This 1828 meetinghouse, on the corner of South Summer and Cooke streets, is the oldest church building in its original location still used for worship on the Vineyard and has had few changes made. It features box pews; graceful woodwork; a Hook and Hastings organ, which was installed in 1895 in a case built in 1840 by Ebenezer Goodrich, and restored in 1985; a handsome chandelier which originally burned whale oil; and an 1853 Ingraham clock. The sanctuary, which is acoustically ideal, seats nearly 400 persons within 40 feet of the pulpit. The building is inspirational, a tribute to its designer.”

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. I'm also into genealogy and reading. Hope you enjoy :)

  1. The church looks solemn and peaceful, that match with the structure of the building, it looks the church building is well taken cared of.
