The Gingerbread Cottages

For anyone that is familiar with Martha's Vineyard, these is are The Gingerbread Cottages of Oak Bluffs. There are over 300 of these cottages which were built in the mid 1800s. They have been preserved with pristine care, attention to detail, and brilliant colors. The owners of these cottages, have a inviting sense of humor as they have nickname for their home. Names such as "The Pink House", "Sea Shrimp Cottage", or "Wooden Valentine" are adorned on many of these homes.

The cottage started out as campground tents for members of the community church. In the middle of this circle of houses, the original Tabernacle still stands.
