Aquinnah, formerly called Gay Head, is the western most area of Martha's Vineyard. Aquinnah, West Tisbury, and Chilmark are often referred to as "up-island." This region is rural and unspoiled, with stone walls, farms, and vineyards.
The native Wampanoag tribe is credited with providing this area with much history. One of the few Indian townships in Massachusetts, Aquinnah means "land beneath the hill."
