Description   EN   

Dirived from the town history posted at the Town of Amherst website at


The Town of Amherst was carved out of what was then the Town of Buffalo in 1818. It was named for a British lord, Sir Jeffrey Amherst, who was Commander-in-Chief of the British troops in America in

1758-1763. In 1820, 768 people lived in Amherst. Today there are more than 122,000 residents in the town. During the War of 1812, American troops were stationed in Williamsville in the area

between Garrison Road and Ellicott Creek. The log barracks were converted to use as a hospital to treat ill and injured American and British soldiers. Those who didn't survive were buried in a small cemetery on Aero Drive. Originally a n agricultural community and a stop along the road to Buffalo Amherst is now primarily a residential suburb of the city.

3396.  Hitting this group of 4 Amherst BITs before my event, this evening on the way to 100/3400.  

Busy town, today.  They were having a carnival and some sort of celebration, today.

Thanks and Happy Trails!

Who loves attractive Dog walkers? This guy! Actually I spent most of my time looking at the Bit, and preparing to take a picture of it. After finding, I admired the wooden Statue of Frank Lloyd Wright. He on the other hand, is not attractive.I believe I have been to traffic court twice here, in my 49 years of existance. TFTC.

Haven't done any projects in the town yet until my current project. However I have been in Amherst Town Hall before for a state code variance hearing. I think Yuck and I spotted this at the same time while waiting for a very attractive dog walker to pass by.
