Martha's Vineyard Museum, originally named the Dukes County Historical Society, was established in 1922 after its founding members acquired American Revolution-era documents. After several decades, the Historical Society refined the parameters of its collection to items directly related to Martha's Vineyard. Today, the collection includes historical books and photographs, archival documents, paintings, three-dimensional objects, and engaging museum exhibitions. The Museum's collection is supplemented by the Martha's Vineyard Museum Library, which dually functions as an archive and a research facility. The Library offers Genealogy Services, through which families can access archival records for nearly every town in Massachusetts.
