Amherst County Overview

Created in 1761, Amherst County, Virginia is near the center of the Commonwealth in the Piedmont region. It was named in honor of Lord Jeffery Amherst, the so-called “Conqueror of Canada”. The county was subsequently reduced in size in 1807 to give up land to form Nelson County. Tobacco was the major cash crop of the county during its early years. As of the 2010 census, the population of the county was 32,353, a small increase from the 31,894-people reported in the 2000 census. The total area of the county is 474 square miles of land, plus five square miles of water, and is home to several festivals: Rebec Vineyard’s Garlic Festival, Lazy Days Vineyard’s Summer Solstice Festival, Amherst County Sorghum Festival, and The Batteau Festival. Adjacent counties are: Bedford to the southwest, Lynchburg to the south, Campbell to the south, Appomattox to the southeast, Nelson to the northeast, and Rockbridge to the northwest. Amherst is also home to portions of the Blue Ridge Parkway, and the George Washington National Forest, both nationally protected areas. Ottie Cline Powell (1890–1894), was born in Amherst County. He was a four-year-old boy who died after getting lost collecting firewood outside his schoolhouse. Reportedly he haunts the area. Of the nine zip codes utilized by the county, 24572 is the most populous.
