Why The Larrier House chose Vineyard Haven
The Wampanoag Native Americans called Martha’s Vineyard Noepe which means 'In the Midst of the Sea.' Martha's Vineyard is the largest island on the southeastern coast of Massachusetts. It is twenty miles long and nine miles wide and contains six towns; Edgartown, Oak Bluffs, West Tisbury, Chilmark Aquinnah and Tisbury. Tisbury includes Vineyard Haven which was the name given to the area around the post office.
The Larrier family, originally from Barbados, came through Ellis Island and settled in New York City. The family has a generational relationship with the island. The family included famers, small business owners, importers exporters, doctors and lawyers. The house and its occupants share a proud history of survival and accomplishments.
The Larrier House was built in 1870, five years after the Civil War and survived the Great Fire of 1883 which wiped out almost all of downtown Vineyard Haven.
The Larrier House is now a vacation home and available for you to make your own memories and history.
What makes this house unique
If you want to leave the oversized fully fenced large backyard and venture into town, you will find that the house is a short walk to downtown Vineyard Haven. There you will find great restaurants, a book store, a grocery store, a pharmacy, ice cream, many shops, the beach and the ferry. The house is also on a bus route, making it easy to visit other town without a car.
Martha’s Vineyard has a great bus system! The bus is a “flag stop company” which means in addition to set stops, the bus will stop for you if you flag it down and are standing on the side of the road in the direction you want to go. Taking the bus from the Larrier House: All you have to do is leave the Larrier House, walk to the sidewalk, flag the bus and it will stop and pick you up. The bus leaves downtown Vineyard Haven ever 15 minutes starting at 7 minutes past the hour. The Number 1 bus will take you to downtown Edgartown.
