About 30 miles south of Red Brook Harbor, well within the cruising range of most Buzzards Bay boaters, is an island that few of us has visited. Noman’s Land sits about three miles southwest of Martha’s Vineyard. After decades of use by the U.S. Navy as an aerial bombardment and gunnery site, the island is now a wildlife sanctuary inhabited by no humans and off limits to the public due to the threat of unexploded ordnance.
Although Noman’s Land is technically part of the town on Chilmark, geographically and in reality it is completely isolated and wholly independent of the outside world. We’ve been curious about the island for years and happened across an excellent short history published in The Enterprise last month. Join us in discovering Noma’s Land HERE.
