Better Living, Better Lawn Care in Easton
The Lenape called this land at the confluence of the Lehigh and Delaware rivers "Lechauwitank," or "The Place at the Forks." They sold 1,000 acres here to Thomas Penn in 1737, and by 1752, it was a town named Easton.
Easton played an important role during the Revolutionary War and was one of the first places the Declaration of Independence was read publicly, along with Trenton and Philadelphia. By the 19th century, the city became a major transportation hub during the railroad and canal period, when it became a central hub for the steel industry. Today, the city is best known for the Crayola Experience, a children’s museum operated by Crayola LLC, whose factory is nearby.
The Crayola Experience is at 30 Centre Square, at the Two Rivers Landing. The Crayola Experience helps both kids and adults explore the technology behind making crayons, express their artistic creativity in new ways. There are dozens of hands-on, creative experiences to be had, and it’s a full day of fun for the whole family.
Another place the kids will enjoy is Klein’s Dairy Farm and Creamery. They have some of the best ice creams you’ll ever experience. In addition, they have a playground for the kids and farm animals for them to pet. It’s just a nice, relaxing place to go, and the corn maze in the fall is the best. Also, if you need raw milk, this is the place to go. They sell lots of wholesome dairy products, as well as farm fresh eggs and other good stuff.
The farmers market on Northampton Street offers both wholesome food and family fun. It’s the oldest farmers market in the country, established in the year of the city’s birth, 1752 It won 2015’s No. 1 People’s Choice Award for the U.S. In fact, this is the very spot where the Declaration of Independence was read in 1776. There’s a great selection of locally grown fruits, vegetables, and artisan gourmet specialties.
Another place to explore the history of this great city is the National Canal Museum. This is the only museum in the country that documents America's coal canals and the part they played in America's Industrial Revolution. There are hands-on exhibits, extensive historical collections and archives, and the old lock tender's house and garden. Best of all, you can ride on Pennsylvania's only mule-drawn canal boat. The boat ride is nice and relaxing, with a very informative guide explaining the local history.
The State Theatre is listed on the National Register of Historic places, and is home to the ghost of J. Fred Osterstock. The venue features all kinds of family-friendly stage shows, from music concerts to comedy. And while you’re there, you may also meet Fred, the friendly ghost.
