The Old Whaling Church

Flag as Inappropriate

<p>The Old Whaling Church was designed by Frederick Baylies, Jr. and built by whaling captains in 1843. Its stately white columns have earned it a reputation as one of the finest examples of Greek Revival architecture in the New England. Though no longer used as a weekly house of worship, the interdenominational Old Whaling Church continues to be used as a venue for weddings, concerts, and community events. Guided tours are also available on weekdays. Tours cost $10 for adults and are free for children under 14 years old. They begin at the Vincent House Museum and last approximately 45 minutes.</p>
<p>The church is today maintained by the Martha's Vineyard Preservation Trust; contact info@mvpreservation.org for booking information. </p>
