Hidden history implies a bit of mystery and digging into the unknown. That's what's fun about A Hidden History of Martha's Vineyard. We're looking into some Island topics which are not usually discussed: Graveyards. Underground Railroad. Island names. Unusual buildings. Shipwrecks. Sure, we know a little bit about a few of these topics, but this new book uncovers some of the mystery and lesser known events and experiences associated with the five topics listed. Check out the attached photos for a better view of what A Hidden History is all about. Enjoy!
