Preserving History

Once a dilapidated shell of its former glory, the old whaling captain's home has been meticulously reconstructed and preserved, returning to its rightful place as a classic Edgartown residence.

What sets this property apart is its unique incorporation of two commercial buildings within its walls—a storefront housing a local clothing store and a charming restaurant tucked away in the backyard, currently serving as a popular and locally-owned taco shop.
