Welcome to the Harthaven Community Association Website
Harthaven began as a community in 1873 when William Hart bought a lot from the Oak Bluffs Land and Wharf Company for his family. In 1911 the community moved to its present location. We’ve been a tight knit group of family and friends for more than 90 years. We are held together by a common sharing of values – those of caring for each other and our environment, for enjoying the Vineyard in small ways – fishing, clamming, swimming – our annual clambake in which everyone helps.
What was once primarily a summer community has evolved into a year round neighborhood with young families raising children as well as professionals and retirees.
