Welcome To Easton

"Being born and raised there, I can say some of the best parts of Easton are the historic College Hill area, and the downtown revitalization that has been going on. Many new restaurants and businesses have sprung up over the past few years. The circle has always been the hub of activity. Since 1951, people gather every year to see the lighting of the peace candle right after Thanksgiving. Today one of the big draws is the Crayola Experience on the circle. Another great Easton fact is that Easton vs Phillipsburg is the longest lasting High School Football rivalry in the country. These 2 teams have been playing each other on Thanksgiving day for since 1905!" -Don Wenner Sr, DLP Realty Inside Sales
