In earlier posts I referred to houses with more substantial architecture. I saw several in a row around the big central park. One looked in great shape, I later learned that the house belonged to Tom Clancy and it was rebuilt in 2004 after a fire. The houses on that row and the central gazebo probably reflect the air of Martha’s Vineyard as a summary statement. (Note: Today I found out that the house actually belongs to Peter Norton)
Another landmark people mentioned was the old carousel, apparently the oldest one still in operation in the country. “Flying Horses”, the sign on the building said as we approached it. It is a small one, but in very good shape. It had the old-fashion attraction of grabbing the rings from a side holder and accumulating them on the long pin on top of the horse’s head. I liked the movement of the horses and the kids on top of them against the stationary central part. One horse photograph will give you an idea about the quality of the maintenance and upkeep of this historic place.
