- In this fishing town, as in centuries past, fishermen and lobstermen return from a long journey at sea to unload their catch. The harbor, as well as other island spots, was used in the movie, Jaws. The town is comprised of farmland, ponds, and rolling hills. An ancient stone wall cuts through Chilmark. The town's nickname is Beetlebung Corner, because years ago the Tupelo trees were used to make "beetles" (mallets) and bungs (wooden stoppers).
