- MARTHA’S VINEYARD
living museum on the outside, the famous cottages of the Martha’s Vineyard Camp Meeting Association are off-limits on the inside. Except—wait for it—for one. The Cottage Museum is the only place to see the inside of an Oak Bluffs gingerbread cottage, with an exhibit of typical furnishings and memorabilia including the rocking chair where President Ulysses S. Grant sat when he visited his friend Bishop Gilbert Haven, a summer resident of the camp ground who had served as a chaplain during the Civil War. The museum also has an original magic lantern film projector lighted with a candle from the days way, way before HD.
