Calling it a return to the organization’s roots, the Vineyard Trust announced Monday that it would change its name to the Vineyard Preservation Trust.

“This update to our name best reflects our heritage, our mission and our future,” executive director Nevette Previd said in a press release.

Formerly the Martha’s Vineyard Preservation Trust, the name was changed to the Vineyard Trust in 2018 when the nonprofit was rebranded.

The most recent name change takes place under the leadership of Ms. Previd, who took the helm as the new executive director last month.

The preservation trust owns and manages 20 historic buildings around the Island, including the Old Whaling Church, the Flying Horses carousel and Alley’s General Store.
