We are very close to the Edgartown waterfront.
Back when the house was built in 1840 this was as close as prudent home owners cared to be to the water. Over the years the “sand dune” and marsh to the East of North Water street was built on. With global warming and a few good hurricanes we may once more become “waterfront property”.
Below is an aerial image showing where the Captain Morse House is in relation to the Edgartown waterfront.
Below is an image showing the view of the water along the side of the house on Morse Street.
Going straight one block down Morse street will take you to the Edgartown Wharf and waterfront.
