Amherst was founded in 1764 and incorporated in 1889. The earliest European settlers came from Great Britain seeking a new life. American Loyalist members also fled to the area to avoid the Revolutionary War. The early settlers built a mill, which attracted many young workers. As the community grew, shipbuilding became an important trade. Many of the buildings from the 1800s still stand in Amherst and are fully functional, offering a beautiful glimpse at the town's past. About 9,700 people call Amherst home today. Shipbuilding and a large aluminum foundry continue to be the area's biggest sources of employment. The Trans-Canada Highway passes through Amherst, bringing in many visitors and establishing a center for retail and entertainment along its corridor.
Once you have arrived and settled into your new place, you may want to get out and explore your new neighborhood. If you enjoy sports, be sure to get tickets for a game of the Amherst Ramblers, a junior league hockey team and a part of the Maritime Hockey League. If you prefer to participate in sports, consider joining the Amherst Striders. This group of runners participates in and organizes many races throughout Amherst and the surrounding areas. If you are a nature lover, be sure to spend a weekend afternoon at the vast Amherst Point Migratory Bird Sanctuary. You can see native as well as migratory birds in the sanctuary all year long. Dogs are welcome on many of the sanctuary's hiking trails. To take a break from the great outdoors, head to Amherst Centre or Amherst Town Square where you'll find outlet shopping, movie theaters, eateries and other entertainment to keep you busy in your new community.
