MV Obsession

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

Then/Now And Again …


       1984    –    Ocean Park   –   2012


 1990’s  –    Oak Bluffs Wharf    –  2010


1980’s  –    Old Sculpin Gallery    –  2010


1980’s  –    Trinity Methodist Church    –  2010


1960  –    Gay Head lighthouse    –  2013


 And then there’s this picture of Ocean Park in 1987… look closely at the house in the background to the right of the Bandstand…


…below is a close up although it’s a bit fuzzy. That is the CORBIN-NORTON house ..
before it was restored to its original splendor by Peter Norton. Twice !


The original restoration was finished in the 1990’s and then in Februay of 2001 it burned to the ground.


Like the Phoenix, it rose from the ashes and is again the grand dame of Ocean Park.. here it is all decked out for Illumination Night.

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. We were admiring that house just weeks ago! Stood in front of it hoping not to look too conspicuous as we admired all it’s features! Did not know the history, until now! Thanks for sharing.

  2. I think it’s one of the most beautiful houses on the Vineyard and I love that it was so beautifully restored… twice. 🙂

  3. It’s spectacular isn’t it.
