Amherst was first settled in 1731, became a district in 1759, and granted town status in 1776. This book's 980+ pages contains the story of the first settlers, who came from from Hadley, to found a new community not far from the Connecticut River in central western Massachusetts. Named for General Jeffery Amherst, the British Governor-General of North America during Colonial times. The town is also the location of Amherst College.
In addition to the story of the founding of the settlement there is a chapter of biographical sketches of the founding settlers.
