To step onto the Martha's Vineyard Camp Meeting Association grounds is to step back over 160 years into a civil and indeed a civilized way of living. The unique character of the Campgrounds, a heritage from quite a different day, has been wonderfully preserved by the many generations of cottage owners. The boundaries of the Campgrounds are clearly defined, enough to move some people to say that when they enter the grounds, it is like entering another world. The MVCMA grew out of the religious "camp meetings" of the 19th century. The first meeting took place on these grounds in 1835 with nine church tents and a crude speaker's stand.
