Garden Memorial Walkway
Remembering those who have passed. . .

deceased Historical Society members, or for those who resided in Amherst
for at least a portion of their lives.
Thanks to the efforts of the Amherst Garden Club, the walkway is
surrounded by historic and beautifully maintained plantings – a serene
spot to remember the many who contributed to preserving Amherst’s past
and to making it the wonderful community it is today.
Historical Society kicked off this walkway project by placing bricks for
the last five Board members who have passed - Charlie Duval, Bonnie
Struss, Dick Martini, Helen Rowe and Bill Wichman. We hope you'll consider memorializing someone special
