Amherst County is an American county, located in the Piedmont region and near the center of the Commonwealth of Virginia. The county is part of the Lynchburg, VA Metropolitan Statistical Area, and its county seat is Amherst.

Amherst County was created in 1761 out of Albemarle County, and it was named in honor of Lord Jeffery Amherst, the so-called “Conqueror of Canada”. The county was subsequently reduced in size in 1807 in order to give up land to form Nelson County. Tobacco was the major cash crop of the county during its early years.

As of the 2010 census, the population of the county was 32,353, a small increase from the 31,894 people reported in the 2000 census.

    Joe grew up the son of a Game Warden of 30 years while learning to appreciate the outdoors for its beauty and recreational opportunities. His love of the outdoors led him to a degree in Recreation and Parks Management from West Virginia University. After graduation, he became a State Park Ranger in North Carolina where he helped manage the beginning development for one of the largest parks in the state. The beauty of Central Virginia called him back home where he worked as the Recreation Specialist and Tourism Director for Amherst County. Now a husband and father of 2 girls, Joe is right back at home selling properties to families and individuals who appreciate the values of the outdoors. His dedication to land stewardship makes him an excellent fit to Mossy Oak Properties of Virginia!
