VIRTUAL TALK: “Ghosts of Martha’s Vineyard” with Thomas Dresser
March 4, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm$10.00
GHOSTS OF MARTHA’S VINEYARD
Thomas Dresser never saw a ghost or thought they existed—until he sat down to write this book. So what changed the local historian’s mind? Too many eerie tales that have stood the test of time. Like the story of the whaleman’s widow who flicks the lights on and off, tosses wine glasses around and appears by the fireplace of a popular Edgartown pub. Or the tale of specter Scottie who has spooked students at the Tisbury School for decades, and the accounts of four-year-old Elizabeth Vanderhoof, who drowned in 1928 and has been seen on the family homestead in Aquinnah ever since. Creepy campgrounds. Unusual inns. A jailhouse that will give you the jitters. As you hear about haunted happenings from all six island towns, you’ll also learn about the Island’s not so spooky history. Thomas has lived and worked on Martha’s Vineyard for twenty five years and has written several historical books, ranging from African Americans on Martha’s Vineyard to Martha’s Vineyard in World War II.
