The town itself has lots of gingerbread houses, with brightly painted fronts and grey shingle sides towards the sides and back, as does the Trinity Park area. We agreed that the houses were fun to photograph and wander amidst, but wouldn’t want the hassle of upkeep, especially as the architectural committee has very strict rules. In fact, the cottages around the Trinity Park area, where the evangelic revivals were held each year since the 1800s, are not allowed to be changed in any way on the outside, so if an owner wants to winterize them, it must all be done from the inside. They are very cute, mostly smaller ones around the park itself, and larger ones outside the park area. Most of them are summer homes, as the wind whistles thru the non-insulated shingle sides and roofs. They have one house to look thru which quickly gives you an idea of what it would have been like to live there, esp now with the need to winterize and the tininess of the place.

There were no services in progress as we walked through the campground during the daytime. The sunlight illuminated the beautiful windows near the roofline of the building. The setting made me think about what the early days were like for Billy Graham and Oral Roberts.

I liked this area. This Tabernacle is one in the same with the area containing the Gingerbread Houses. The tabernacle is in the middle of them. I believe there is a tour one can take to learn about it, but we just walked around in this peaceful, clean, picturesque park area. Lots of good photo opps within this area.

This was probably the best thing we saw on Martha's Vineyard. We were there for just 5 hours and we took the time to look at the village of gingerbread style houses, the tabernacle and the church - all worth seeing. The gardens and colors made for some fantastic photos.
