Description

The building you see is called the MayhewHancock-Mitchell House in memory of its previous occupants. The house is a rare, wattle and daub structure. The precise history of the house is debatable, but some theorize that it was built by Thomas Mayhew as a combination church and schoolhouse in the mid-1600s. If this is true, it would make this the oldest surviving house on the Vineyard.
