Easton is aptly named, as it located in eastern Pennsylvania. Its location also provides a multitude of scenic water views, as the Lehigh and Delaware Rivers meet in this city. The area is rich in history with roots tracing back to early European settlers. Since the city's founding in 1752, it has played important roles in the French and Indian War, American Revolutionary War and today is home to a monument honoring Civil War veterans from Easton.
