The Amherst Historical Society works to connect people with the Town of Amherst, its history, and its culture. It was founded in 1903 by a group of Amherst citizens led by Mabel Loomis Todd to secure Amherst’s history and culture for future generations. Since 1916, our home has been the c. 1750 Simeon Strong House. For more information, visit our website,; send us an email to; or call us at 413.256.0678.
