Historical Captain Morse House

A Truly Historic House

A beautiful part of Edgartown’s history, the Captain Morse House was built in 1840 in the Greek Revival Style. Captain Morse sailed to the California gold fields from his wharf at the foot of his street. The home has retained its original character and is considered a very fine example of a NE Whaling Captain’s Home.
