“A magical walk around the Tabernacle”

Trinity Park Tabernacle
Ranked #5 of 21 things to do in Oak Bluffs
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 14, 2013

We walked around the Tabernacle and heard beautiful piano music. Then went inside the seating area and saw a lovely woman play the grand piano expertly. It was peaceful, and we were surrounded by lovely gingerbread houses with the most gorgeous flowers.

Did not get a chance to see any functions there. But it was beautiful! Will definitely try to make it back there the next time we visit Oak Buffs!

This park is lined with a host of charming "gingerbread" cottages and at the center is the tabernacle, a very nice, vintage steel structure with stained glass in the large cupola roof. There is a well maintained wooden church next to it.

Didn't know this part of the Island existed, been to the Island 4 times before I found this area. It was gorgeous.

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.
