Activities

Built in 1753 by Jacob Bachmann and his wife Katrinna, at the corner of Fermor (now Second) and Northampton Streets. This stone tavern also served as a place for local politicians to meet and exchange ideas, and from 1753 to 1766 a large room on the second floor was used as the first Court of Northampton County. The tavern was also owned by George Taylor, a signer of the Declaration of Independence, and was used as his residence. The Bachmann Publick House has been restored with 70% of the building’s original fabric is intact. This building is on the National Register of Historic Places. The building currently contains the Lenape Cultural Center, open on Saturdays from 11am to 3pm.

D & L Trail
,

The D&L Trail follows the 165-mile route that anthracite coal took from mine to market. It winds through northern mountains and along the banks of the Lehigh and Delaware Rivers through northeast Pennsylvania, the Lehigh Valley and through Bucks County. The D&L Trail passes through towns, industrial powerhouses and along remnants of the Lehigh and Delaware canals. This earthen path exposes walkers, hikers, bicyclists and others to some of Pennsylvania’s finest wild lands, waterfalls, wildflowers and wildlife.

The Easton trailhead is located at the confluence of the Lehigh and Delaware Rivers. Cross the Third Street bridge and head south on Rt. 611 to the parking lot on your left. Head south to travel along the towpath of the Delaware Canal and north to take the Lehigh Canal’s towpath.  There are no restroom facilities at this trailhead.
