Located on the Island of Martha's Vineyard, off the coast of Massachusetts, West Tisbury covers 34 square miles and has a year-round population of 3,151. As a popular vacation destination that number grows to several times that in the summer. The first recorded settlement was in 1669 and incorporated as a town on April 28, 1892. We are home to many acres of State Forest, scenic beaches, rich farm land and have many historical structures still in use today. We continue to retain much of the rural atmosphere and neighborly sense of community that made us notable.
