North Amherst

The Mill District is a dynamic regional destination that’s been intentionally designed to revive critical community connections and local resilience.

Through curated events, arts-based programming, and the ideal mix of shops, services, and eateries, we’re crafting a place where residents, students, commuters, and visitors feel invited and inspired.

Built on the 275-year history of our agro-industrial past, The Mill District has been home to farming and dairy production, a street trolley depot introducing service to Amherst and beyond, and home to the first electric sawmill in the country!

Now, the locally-driven stores, events, and apartments in the Mill District are intentionally designed to be a place to reconnect in the Internet age. Here you can have fun, meet friends, and enjoy all that the Valley has to offer.
