First settled in 1757 by European settlers from the neighboring town of Fairfield, a congregation initially known as North Fairfield Society was formally established in 1762. In 1787, the town of Weston that included Fairfield was formally incorporated,
and in 1845, Easton separated from Weston and established itself as a township in its own right.
Probably the most famous resident of Easton was and still is the deaf/blind activist Helen Keller who resided in Easton until her death in 1968, with the local school being named in her honor.
Easton is a very sparse and highly rural town with a diffused population, and literally half being owned by a major water company who is also the major water supplier to the area.
Owing to the rural nature and sparse population of the town, Easton has no commercial center to speak of; no food market, no major retail stores no train station, street lights, or public transportation system.
Public services for local residents are supplied by a single village store, a deli, and an inn. These are all family establishments and indeed have been continuously since they were founded, some dating back to the early 20th century.
Despite it remote location, sparse population, and lack of any major infrastructure, Easton clearly is a tight-knit community of shared values and dutiful public service. We here at SURE LOCK & KEY also share those values in providing the good people of Easton and wider afield with the very best local residential, commercial, and automotive locksmith services near you.
