Edgartown is a tourist destination on the island of Martha's Vineyard in Dukes County, Massachusetts, United States. It was once a major whaling port, with historic houses that have been carefully preserved. Today it hosts yachting events around its large harbour. It includes the smaller island of Chappaquiddick, where Ted Kennedy's fatal automobile accident took place in 1969. Edgartown was used as the main shooting location for the town of Amity in Steven Spielberg's 1975 blockbuster Jaws. The town's population was 5,168 at the 2020 census. It is a part of Massachusetts's 9th congressional district, represented in the Massachusetts Senate as a portion of the Cape and Islands district. In 1642, Rev. Thomas Mayhew, Jr. led a group of families to start a colony on the Island after its purchase by his father Thomas Mayhews. Originally called Great Harbor, it was incorporated on July 8, 1671, as Edgar Towne, named for Edgar, whose father James II of England, was heir presumptive to the English throne. Those who chose the name to honor the monarchy did not know Edgar had died at the age of three on June 8,1671. In the 1800s, ships from all over the world would dock in its sheltered bay and captains would build grand mansions for their families with ornate top floor rooms called widow's walks, which overlooked the harbor. A myth developed that wives would watch for months from these tiny rooms, hoping to see the sails of ships that would bring their husbands home.

History

Edgartown was one of the two original towns on Martha's Vineyard, along with Tisbury, incorporated at the same time. It was named for Edgar Towne, whose father James II of England, was heir presumptive to the English throne. Today the town is more known for tourism, as well as the site of Chappaquiddick, where Ted Kennedy's fatal automobile accident took place in 1969. In 1642, Rev. Thomas Mayhew, Jr. began his work which led to his becoming the first church planting Protestant missionary after he settled in Edgartown. A Wampanoag Indian named Hiacoomes who lived nearby became his partner in founding the churches in the Indian communities. In the 1800s, the town was a major port for the whaling industry. By the beginning of the 20th century, its influence on the tiny town which had made its fortunes through the industry, was ended. The town is now a popular destination for tourists, especially those looking for a break from the heat of the summer. It is one of only a handful of towns in the U.S. that is still named after a Native American tribe, the Hiccupas. The Hiaccoas live on the island in a community known as the Hiackoas, which was once the seat of the Haccoas tribe, which is now part of the town of Wiscasset, Massachusetts. It has a population of about 2,000.

Tourism

Edgartown was used as the main shooting location for the town of Amity in Steven Spielberg's 1975 blockbuster Jaws. Many landmarks and buildings in Edgartown that were filmed in the movie can still be seen today. South Beach is a small part of the ocean beach that runs the entire southern length of the island. The harbor is large and entered through a modest sized channel on the North side of EdgartOWN. It opens into Katama Bay, created by a barrier beach that sometimes connects the south end of Chappaquiddick to the remainder of the town. The town has also encouraged renovation of historical structures such as the Whaling Church, a large 18th-century church, which has been converted to a performing arts center. The growth of the population over the past 25 years has led to a period of intense renewal of these old houses. Much of the beach is open to the public with ample parking available. The section near Katama is often crowded, while the sections further to the west (near Edgartow Great Pond and Oyster Pond) are often less so. The opening of the harbor will accommodate large sailing and motorized boats, but will not accommodate large ships or yachts which may anchor outside the harbor. It can be reached by driving or riding the bus south from Edgartrow center for approximately 2.5 miles. It is a major destination for tourists and is a big draw for summer visitors. The city is home to a number of sailing and sailing clubs, including the Martha's Vineyard sailing club.
