Amherst Mural Project Amherst Historical Walking Tour Image of Esther Cox's House - Great Amherst Mystery Amherst Heritage Homes
The Amherst Mural Project started in 1996 to instill pride in our heritage and beautify the downtown. Many of the beautiful old buildings in Amherst are registered heritage buildings and considered industrial artifacts. Every town has a ghost story but Esther Cox would draw international attention as the victim of a bizarre twist of fate. Take a tour of Amherst's
