White clapboard houses once owned by whaling captains and rose-covered picket fences are the signatures of the Edgartown Village historic district, which has an eclectic array of architectural styles. Main Street runs down to the harbor and North Water Street runs out to the scenic Edgartown Light, surrounded by a public walking path and beach. The village is mostly seasonal save a handful of hardy year-round shops and restaurants.
