Own a Piece of Amherst History

846 East Pleasant Street, listed by Chrisitne Lau, has the distinction of being one of the oldest homes in Amherst! Over the years there have been many renovations and upgrades and the property has a rich local history. 


The original main house was built in the 1700s by Ephraim Kellogg who operated an inn on the site until 1756. He sold the property to Elijah Baker of Northampton, whose family lived and farmed there for almost 100 years. Asa Adams, who became the next owner, continued farming there, eventually selling to Ellis "E.C." Harlow in 1908 who focused on dairy farming and breeding, with his family business “Jerseydale Farm” receiving many accolades over the course of his ownership. A 1921 article from The Jersey Bulletin and Dairy World states that Mr. Harlow “built up one of the greatest herds in Massachusetts” and won numerous awards for his cows and milk production. Over the following generations some of the land was developed but the original farmhouse remains.
