New Home Communities in Amherst

Situated a few miles west of Cleveland, and almost on the banks of Lake Erie, is the city of Amherst. The area was rich in sandstone, leading to the nickname "Sandstone Capital of the World". The city still goes by this nickname even though sandstone is no longer part of the local economy. Amherst is experiencing strong growth, making it a very attractive option for young families wanting a break from big city living.

Main Street Amherst is in a very active campaign that seeks to preserve the unique, historical architecture of downtown Amherst, while attracting new businesses. Part of this involves a very busy calendar of events aimed not only at raising funds, but also at bringing the community together. Regular theatre shows, musical performances and community meetings are just some of the events you can expect. The campaign has already drawn many businesses into the downtown area, making this the ideal destination for local shopping.

Everyday essentials are easily found at the local Target, with nearby Lorain offering access to many more big name department stores. When you need a larger variety of stores you will discover that the area has many malls to choose from, all within 30-miles of Amherst. From the Great Northern Mall in North Olmsted, and the SouthPark Mall in Strongsville, to Crocker Park in Westlake, each with their own distinctive mix of stores. While they do share many of the same tenants, you will still find that each mall still has their own appeal.

You will not find a better park for spending time outdoors than the Amherst Beaver Creek Reservation. This park has picnic facilities, a soccer field, playground and a short paved trail that leads you through the natural splendor of Beaver Creek. Lakeview Park in nearby Lorain is perfect for summer weekends, with access to Lake Erie, a beach, and a variety of events and sporting activities held every summer.

Amherst has their own independent schools district, serving the residents with five public schools. There is one private school within Amherst, with another five private schools within Lorain County. Higher education is offered through Oberlin College in Oberlin, and Lorain County Community College in Elyria, not forgetting the universities and colleges found in Cleveland.
