Town of Easton

Easton Town SealEstablished in 1725, Easton’s industrial history is most noted for the production of shovels by the Ames Shovel Company. The Ames family shaped Easton’s economy, geography, and architecture by providing shovels to the Union Pacific Railroad, which opened up the west, and donating landmark buildings to the town.

The 29.04 square-mile town offers higher education at Stonehill College and recreational activities at Borderland State Park and Militia Park.
