The Easton Area Public Library is proud to be serving our community since 1811. Come see our Carnegie Building, built in 1901. The Henry F. Marx Local History Room is a great place to research local history and family genealogy. The Easton Flag, which was flown in downtown Easton at the reading of the Declaration of Independence in 1776, is on display in the Marx Room. The Library offers free Wi-Fi and is open 65 hours per week.
The Jacob Nicholas House, at the corner of 5th & Ferry Streets, is named after the original owner of this “bank” house. Built circa 1807, the home retains the original 200 year old brick entry walk, as well as a walk-in fireplace and much of the original interior woodwork. The Nicholas House has been restored, with furnishings dating from the 1830’s, and is one of few restored structures in the nation that illustrate life at home for a typical working person or family. This building is on the National Register of Historic Places.
The Parsons Taylor House was built in 1757 by William Parsons who surveyed Easton for the Penn family.
