In 1728 Amherst, New Hampshire was originally established as Narragansett No. 3, and was later known as Souhegan No. 3. The town became recognized as Amherst in 1760, named after British commander, General Jeffrey Amherst. Amherst became the first seat of Hillsborough County  in 1769 and was home to the courthouse, jail and the whipping post. Throughout the next 75 years Amherst became smaller. Land grants were offered and today make up other towns including Merrimack, Milford, and Mont Vernon.

During 1879 the governing offices that were previously located in Amherst were moved to the cities of Manchester and Nashua. The courthouse was then transformed into the Amherst town hall. The founder of the New York Tribune, Horace Greeley, was born in Amherst in 1811 and his home still stands in the town today.

The business and commercial area in Amherst is mainly located on Route 101A, allowing the town to maintain its beautiful historic background.
