MV Obsession

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

MV Triv-Ets …



I’ve been doing trivia questions since March 2009… and snippet pictures since June 2012…  I thought I might combine them and thus the post title… Triv-Ets.


Trivia question #1 –  which is further north… West Chop or East Chop

Trivia question #2 – name 4 presidents who have spent a night or more on the Vineyard

Trivia question #3 – what does the name ‘beetlebung’ mean

Trivia question #4 – why did Alexander Graham Bell visit MV in 1895

Trivia question #5 – what town is the only town in the world with its name


How many places can you name.

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 :)

  1. 1. West Chop
    2. Clinton, Obama, Grant, Johnson (?)
    3. I think Beetlebung is a type of tree found in the area of beetlebung corner in chilmark (also a good ?)
    4. ?
    5. ?

    On the snippets you got me this time.

    only ones i even have a guess at are :

    2. in the campgrounds in OB
    4. Daniel webster house

  2. East Chop is farther north…
    hmmm.. Adams, Clinton, Obama….
    Beetlebung is an original MV word, describing a sort of mallet used to harvest wood to make containers to hold.. I think whale oil.
    4. I don’t know.
    5. I’m guessing Aquinnah
    Snippet 1 and 3 – stumped.
    Snippet 2 somewhere in the campgrounds, a porch
