17. Bucolic Easton

Just beyond the schoolhouse is the historic heart of Easton.  To your left is the Staples Academy Building, the oldest building in Easton.  It offered free private education from 1795 to 1895 and is regarded to be among the first in the country to offer this.  Today, it is the parish house of the Congregational Church that is in front of you perched on a hill.  Captain James Johnson, who was the grandson of the first Pastor of the Church, built this classic Congregational Church in 1836.  To your left is Greiser’s Store that was once a stagecoach stop and is reminiscent of bygone days.
