The African American Heritage Trail of Martha’s Vineyard has added the Nameless Trail as site No. 32, according to a press release from Heritage Trail executive director Elaine Weintraub.

The Nameless Trail was created by students at the Martha’s Vineyard Charter School, and honors all those who were enslaved on the Vineyard, and enslaved people who escaped with the help of Vineyard residents.
