Since its inception in 1957 (view list of charter members), our Society’s mission has been to promote the study and recording of Amherst’s rich history, and to arrange for the safekeeping of artifacts and old records.
We meet five times a year where members and guests are treated to programs on diverse historical topics followed by refreshments and a chance to meet and talk to neighbors.
Please support our mission by becoming a member!
