Old Home Day

Saturday, September 8, 2018

Renamed from last year's successful Discover Amherst Day, this event will feature walking tours of Amherst Village, family activities and games throughout the day, historical reenactors, craft booths and civic organizations on the Village Green, and a family picnic. The day will be capped off by a Community Supper and Silent Auction.

All proceeds go towards the preservation and restoration of the Historical Society's Wigwam and Chapel museums.
