275th anniversary for church in Amherst

AMHERST, Mass. (WWLP) – The first congregational church in Amherst had much to celebrate Sunday.

It’s a year long celebration saluting the 275th anniversary of this venerable church in the heart of Amherst.

Nancy Brose and her family become members of the church when they first arrived in Hampshire county forty years ago. She told 22News, “We came in 1974 and I walked down the street from my house two blocks away and I said to my family I think we’ve found a place to worship and enjoy the community.”

Members of the first congregational church can gently boast their church was already up and running even before Amherst became a town.
