Amherst/Williamsville

Amherst was formed from part of the Town of Buffalo (later the City of Buffalo), which had previously been created from the Town of Clarence. Timothy S. Hopkins was elected the first Supervisor of the Town of Amherst in 1819. Part of Amherst was later used to form the Town of Cheektowaga in 1839.
