Chilmark's small, rural community is located toward the western end of Martha's Vineyard. Most of its land is devoted to residential and agricultural use. It boasts beautiful homes set on rolling land, rambling stone walls, grazing sheep, and one of the most beautiful of all Vineyard drives: Middle Road. The center of town is home to an old elementary schoolhouse, originally a one room school built in 1850 and the current site of the Chilmark Police Station. There is also a tiny post office, a public library, a town hall built circa 1897, an elementary school, and a handsome church built in 1843. Although it has no official “grocery” stores, the Chilmark Store carries some items along with fresh-made foods. You might spot a celebrity from New York or Los Angeles sitting right beside a local in one of the rocking chairs on the porch enjoying a slice of pizza. Menemsha is an important part of Chilmark, where the last remnants of a fabled fishing fleet are tied up at the dock behind two fish markets offering fresh or cooked lobster or the catch of the day.
