Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Saw the interior when on a Preservation Trust tour. I absolutely loved hearing the sound of the bell. The interior is stunning - reminded me of a ballroom.

Behind its dramatic pedimented facade, the church is quite beautiful with a well restored interior where the large church space is set at first floor level accessed by stairs either side of the narrow entrance hall. Well worth a visit if you can gain entrance.

Beautiful old church in the center of Edgartown. They hold concerts, readings, and other public events here. The space is larger than it looks and it is a very pleasant spot of an evening.

Went here for an evening bluegrass concert. Small intimate location. Great acoustics. Parking is a challenge but it is everywhere in Edgartown.

I am not sure this is often open, but we were able to see the inside and the interesting mural. It is a large very puritan looking church.

A dominating and impressive presence as you walk by when in Edgartown - interesting to read of the history.

This doesn't seem to be listed on Trip Advisor but the tour is run twice a day and is on their website. The walking tour takes you to all of the main attractions with a wonderful narrative. The docent has keys to venues you cannot enter otherwise!

This is what you would expect a church in Edgartown to look like. A beautiful example of Greek Revival architecture. The grand columns beckon visitors.

Had a beautiful night to hear Judy in concert. The acoustics were terrific, lovely breeze coming in the open windows and a very appreciative crowd. Only negative are the uncomfortable pew seats. But a small price to pay for a great show/venue.
