Situated at the confluence of the Lehigh and Delaware rivers, Easton has many charms, including its architecture, natural beauty, generous people, and rich history. Amble downtown and you’ll find a range of restaurants, antique shops, art galleries, a yoga studio, a used book store and, on the weekends, live jazz. With its proximity to New York City and Philadelphia, its affordability, and intriguing, downtown living spaces, Easton attracts artists, musicians, photographers, writers, actors, and other creative types to its neighborhoods.
Founded in 1752, Easton was one of only three cities where the Declaration of Independence was publicly read after its adoption by the Second Continental Congress. The reading, on July 6, 1776, in Easton’s Great Square, now called Centre Square, was greeted with shouts, huzzahs, and the firing of muskets. Today, Centre Square is home to retail stores, restaurants and the country’s oldest, continuously operating open-air market, Easton Farmers’ Market. It, too, dates back to about 1752.
College Hill is a shady, sidewalk-filled residential community with a variety of casual dining spots, including Giacomo’s Italian Market & Grille and The Cosmic Cup, along with hair salons, convenience stores, and other stores and services adjacent to campus.
