Once a part of Albemarle County, Amherst was created out of it in 1761, and was named in honor of Lord Jeffrey Amherst, the Conqueror of Canada. It is located in the Piedmont Region, geographically near the center of the State of Virginia. As population was increasing in 1807, the county was subsequently reduced in size in order to give up land to form Nelson County. Tobacco was the major cash crop of the county during its early years. Boasting a current population of approximately 33,000 people, the county continues to grow. Recreational opportunities include canoeing, kayaking and fishing on public lakes, namely Mill Creek, Otter Lake, Thrashers Lake, and Stonehouse Lake. Additionally, you'll find many parks and hiking trails throughout, as approximately 25 miles of the Appalachian Trail passes through the County within the George Washington National Forest. Mountain peaks awaiting exploration included Mount Pleasant, Cole Mountain and Tar Jacket Ridge.
