Centennial Celebration

The historic Shearer Cottage, "the first guesthouse on Martha's Vineyard to cater to African American visitors and the first location to be designated a landmark on the African American Heritage Trail of Martha's Vineyard," recently celebrated its 100-year anniversary. The Oak Bluffs guesthouse has hosted politicians, musicians and entertainers including Paul Robeson, Ethel Waters and Lionel Richie and the Commodores. [Martha's Vineyard Times]
