4.7 Acres

Proven again: the land bank apothegm about perseverance. The land bank first prioritized this land in 1990 but had to wait until 2018 when it became available at a price the institution was willing to pay. Upon its acquisition, the land bank renaturalized the dune, by removing its two cottages, and then entered into an agreement with the town of Tisbury calling for the land bank to manage both the land bank beach and the abutting town beach as one. This effectively tripled the length of the public surfline there.

Start at the intersection of Franklin Street and Daggett Avenue. Travel west on Daggett Avenue 0.5 miles; Herring Creek Road is here on the right, in two separate tracks. Take the left track and travel 1.2 miles to the property; road is exceptionally challenging to drive, owing to narrowness and limited sight-distances. Parking and access are limited and visitors may have to be turned away; please have an alternative destination in mind if you are planning a trip to this property.
