New sign near Sweetser Park
Three new signs were installed yesterday at both ends and the middle of the long stretch of frontage at the Emily Dickinson Homestead Museum, perhaps Amherst's greatest cultural asset.
Not that small businesses in the downtown would mind having foreign travelers stopping in to ask direction and grabbing a cup coffee. The Museum attracts 15,000 visitors annually.
