About Easton

Easton, Pennsylvania is located in eastern Pennsylvania, near Philadelphia and Allentown. The city was founded in 1752.

Easton was originally referred to as “Lechauwitank,” or “The Place at the Forks,” by the Lenape Native Americans. The area was settled by Europeans in 1739 and founded in 1752. Easton received its name by the request of Thomas Penn, son of William Penn. Thomas had married Juliana Fermor, who had come from the estate of Easton Neston in England. 

The Bachmann Tavern is the oldest building in the city, dating back to 1753. George Washington and Ben Franklin visited the tavern, and George Taylor, a signer of the Declaration of Independence, resided in the tavern. Easton was also one of the first three places to have a public reading of the Declaration of Independence.

The Easton Area School District serves Easton with nine schools, and Lafayette College is situated in Easton. Easton also holds the Crayola Factory, an interactive children’s museum owned by Crayola LLC. The Palmer Park Mall is located in Easton for various shopping needs. Many delicious restaurants are also in the area and will satisfy any appetite.
