It is located in the U.S. state of Massachusetts, in Dukes County, which also includes
Cuttyhunk and the other Elizabeth Islands, as well as the island of Nomans Land).
It was home to one of the earliest known deaf communities in the United States;
consequently, a special dialect of sign language, Martha's Vineyard Sign Language,
developed on the island.
The island is primarily known as a summer colony, and is accessible only by boat and by air.
Nevertheless, its year-round population has grown considerably since the 1960s.
