Over 100 years ago, the Tabernacle featured religious revivals, traveling preachers and faith-filled followers. Today, thanks to ongoing restoration by the MV Preservation Trust, the summertime Tabernacle still hosts Wednesday evening singalongs, occasional Sunday services, internationally-recognized speakers and musicians, as well as the annual Martha's Vineyard High School graduation. During the quieter shoulder-seasons, small Bible Study groups may gather while... More

There wasn't anything going on when we stopped by here. It was roped off so we could not go in and sit for a little while but there was plenty of seating when someone is here performing. This place sits among many gingerbread houses. The area is quiet, away from the crowds. It's nice to check it out for a... More

The Tabernacle sits in the middle of the quaint and lovely Gothic cottages in The Campground and helps one to understand how important religion was to those original Methodist "campers". I'm sure attending a service in this vast open air structure must be awesome and inspiring. We enjoyed a leisurely stroll in the park and around the Tabernacle.

While you're visiting Martha's Vineyard, don't miss the beautiful Tabernacle in Oak Bluffs. Sit and think about life, the Universe and everything.

I love stopping on the grass here and looking at the houses around. The grounds are soft, lush, green grass that you can almost sleep in... well yeah I might have napped....

Nice place to duck out of the rain Has port-a-potties. In the center of the "campground" Probably a neat place to attend services or a special event.

The Trinity Park Tabernacle is definitely worth a visit. There is no admission. The tabernacle is very historic and the surrounding area is very quiet and serene. It is within walking distance of the Oak Bluffs ferry that goes back to Woods Hole. The visit makes a perfect start or end to your day on Martha's Vineyard.

The Tabernacle and surrounding community was part of the Methodist campground movement of the 19th century and an important part of American history. It is akin to those in Ocean Grove, NJ and Asbury Grove in MA, but far more charming.

It is always fun to see this area with the tabernacle's stained glass, and all of the many colored cottages. It is a very pretty and peaceful place.

The church is very plain but has beautiful stained-glass windows. The wood structure reminded me of days at camp...don't forget to look up at the stained-glass around the roof. The cottages around the park are not to be missed. They were my favorite part.
