Easton:  Discover Where Historic Charm Meets Trendy and New

Founded by Thomas Penn in 1752, Easton – Lehigh Valley’s smallest city – is located in the eastern end of Lehigh Valley at the convergence of the Delaware and Lehigh Rivers along the New Jersey state border.

In 1765, Northampton County’s first courthouse was built in what is now known as Centre Square. It is here that one of the three original readings of the Declaration of Independence was conducted on July 8, 1776; to this day, re-enactors celebrate this event on Heritage Day.

Centre Square is also home to one of the oldest continuous open-air farmers markets in the country, Easton Farmers’ Market, which upholds its tradition Saturday mornings May – November.

When the Lehigh Canal was completed in 1829, Easton become a center for industry, manufacturing, commerce and culture.

Easton’s history has been well-preserved over the years; many historical buildings still stand today and are still functioning as tour sites.

Downtown Easton is home to shops, trendy restaurants, art galleries and antique stores. Families enjoy The Crayola Experience, stars of stage and screen perform throughout the year at the State Theatre Center for the Arts.

The College Hill neighborhood is named for Lafayette College, also in Easton.
