Description

Adjacent to Sheriff Meadow’s 150 acre Quansoo Farm and its trails, this property offers views across Tisbury Great Pond and access to the pond’s edge. Quansoo and Quenames are Wampanoag for “the long fish” and reference the location where Wampanoags caught eels during September and October when eels migrate to the ocean.
