Since 1975 the Martha’s Vineyard Preservation Trust has acquired, preserved and managed the endangered landmarks of Martha’s Vineyard, restoring living institutions to their rightful place in Island life. The Trust is a private, not-for-profit organization supported by contributions from the public and through the management of its historic properties.
All of these irreplaceable properties were badly deteriorated, and in many cases threatened by demolition, when the Trust undertook their restoration and permanent care. In each case, it was only through the commitment and generosity of our many members and supporters that we were able to keep these landmarks, which are so essential to the unique character of Martha’s Vineyard, in the mainstream of Island life.
The Martha’s Vineyard Preservation Trust is supported by our members and donors. Without you, we would not be able to do the work we do for our Island. Membership benefits include invitations to all our events including the Taste of the Vineyard, and our semi-annual newsletter Preservation News.
We are no longer accepting new members for the purpose of being eligible to purchase tickets to the 2017 Taste of the Vineyard Gourmet Stroll. Membership renewals will continue to be accepted.
