Knowledge of the events of past years, of the older buildings and landmarks, and of the sturdy men and women who have lived, had their influence, and then passed on, cannot fail to make its impress on the mind of the student.

Though he may be all unconscious of it, this knowledge must inevitably engender in him an increased interest, love and respect for the town which is the result of these events and influences of the past.No town is richer in history than Amherst- no community of proportionate size has produced more men and women of sterling character who have been of genuine worth to state and nation.The history of Amherst has been well and fully written, and in compiling this volume no attempt has been made to add materially to the facts and data already included in previous works.The writer of a town history is obliged, by the very nature of his work, to treat the events and people of the past in a purely impersonal manner.

And so these characters and happenings, when viewed in the perspective of the years and through the pages of the printed history, tend to lose their realness, their vitality, and become, instead, mere historical personages and episodes.In preparing this little volume the writer has been entirely untrammeled by any thought of producing all the history of Amherst or of presenting it in the usual historical manner. Instead it has been her sole purpose to set forth such incidents and stories in Amherst history as have appealed to her as most interesting- also trying to show the characters as actual, living, human beings and the events as real, genuine occurrences.

To help her visualize her descriptions she has made use, whenever possible, of pictures.In compiling this book free use has been made of numerous sources of information.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
