|The Emily Dickinson Homestead is across the road from the Allen House Inn. Emily Dickinson, poet, was the foremost resident of the town of Amherst.|
That perches in the soul,
And sings the tune without words
And never stops - at all.
Amherst Town Common is a short walk from the Allen House Inn. Our Town Common is the heart of the community's
spirit, voice and activities. With flowers, green lawns and shade trees, walkways and park benches, the Town Common
is host to farmers' markets, fairs, festivals, outdoor movies, concerts and rallies.
The fun-filled Book & Plow Festival celebrates literature, agriculture and "the land." The internationally famous Teddy Bear Rally attracts thousands of teddy bear lovers from around the world!
Surrounding the Town Common are Amherst College, the Town Hall, bookstores, galleries, arts & crafts shops, cafes and fine restaurants.
