White clapboard houses once owned by whaling captains and rose-covered picket fences are the signatures of the Edgartown Village historic district. Main Street runs down to the harbor and North Water Street runs out to the scenic Edgartown Lighthouse. The village is mostly seasonal, save a handful of hardy year-round shops and restaurants.
