Amherst, VA Real Estate

Established in 1807, the town of Amherst was named after the British Major General Sir Jeffrey Amherst. The town was originally formed by serving as a stage station on the Charlottesville – Lynchburg Road, and continued to steadily grow from there.

According to the 2010 Census, Amherst has a population of just over 2,200 people; it is a small but mighty town.

Within its 5 square miles, residents can enjoy everything from the Blue Ridge Mountains, to water sports, hunting, hiking, and even lounging on the beach.

Described as a progressive and successful town, town officials aim to make Amherst the perfect place to live and do business—and is conveniently located only minutes away from Sweet Briar College. Living in Amherst allows residents easy access to the major metropolis of Lynchburg, as well as a multitude of other central Virginia attractions.
