How can I donate to the Whale Tail Memorial Park renovation by purchasing an engraved brick?



This significant landmark is sited on property that was originally donated in 1983 by Fairleigh Dickinson and the Harborview Hotel to commemorate Edgartown's historic whaling heritage. The life-sized sculpture of a finback whale's tail was created by Ovid Osborn Ward in dedication to this whaling community.

The Edgartown Beautification Committee is pleased to be coordinating the restoration of the Whale Tail Park at Memorial Wharf. You are invited to join in the effort by purchasing an engraved brick in your family's name or in memory of a loved one. Engraved bricks will be offered at $200 each. The deadline for ordering bricks is March 1, 2018.

Installation is planned for the spring of 2018, and will be done at The Whale Tail Memorial site. The bricks are engraved using state of the art laser technology. Their beauty and durability will create a lasting impression! You'll be able to bring your family and friends to see your personalized brick for years to come.
